Additional Info:John Baldessari is an American Conceptual artist who has been making innovative work pivotal to the trajectory of contemporary art for over fifty years. He is best known for his innovative approach to blending and cropping photography, painting, and text, and his diverse practice has shaped the contemporary art landscape and various categories by which is often characterized. Smoke, Tree, Shadow and Person is a bizarre image in black and white depicting a man laying down while up ahead of him a tree is caught in a swirl of smoke. With the background completely removed, the elements of the composition operate largely independently of one another and yet they are captured within the same frame. This edition was created and published as part of the initiative Artist’s of the world for Handicap International.
