This is a 1966-68 painting by conceptual artist John Baldessari, f.y.i.
baldessari is the man, i suggest investigating further
I love this painting! I saw it once I think at LACMA? I also have it as a fridge magnet which is strange but delightful. I find it very comforting.
Makes me want to write a kind of abstract, surrealist book in a light tone with lots of scenery, flowers, naked people, and starfish–starring Madonna, a cock, and a bull.
Can we add Maritime narratives and Kia dealerships to this list?
(free of morbid props… dead birds, etc.)
