Marian Goodman Gallery, New York
Monika Sprüth Philomene Magers, Munich
I hated looking at all these unknown faces (in my pictures) because they represented the real world. Finally...I decided to cover them over with some white disks....I realized that I had transformed these figures into generic types as opposed to people....As I developed the idea I began to color code the disks I would use. A red disk on someone made him or her appear dangerous while a green disk had the oppostie effect. A blue disk represented some sort of aspiration, a Platonic idea, while a yellow disk stood for chance and chaos. John Baldessari (Exh. Cat., John Baldessari: Somewhere Between Almost Right and Not Quite (With Orange), Berlin, Deutsche Guggenheim, p. 54)
