Catalogue Note

"He also constructs images that are photographs in relief. Metaphorically speaking, his process links up with the definition of the hologram: a three-dimensional image suspended in midair. Baldessari creates 'transfer images,' interferences, revealed by color and cutting. He invents a poetics whose grammar connects with a way of thinking about the world, rid of all belief. The world is thus rooted in a history that is no longer to be believed but conceived."

Marie de Brugerolle in Exh. Cat., Los Angeles County Museum of Art (and traveling), John Baldessari: Pure Beauty, 2009, p. 313
