    About The Work

    John Baldessari created this print for Counter Editions in 2009. The print is a combination of the imagery from the installation Brain/Cloud—part of his retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern. Palm trees and clouds are recurring motifs in Baldessari's work, and having lived and worked in California for most of his life, the palm tree acts as an iconic locational marker in spite of being a non-native species. The absurdity of the tree's shape and size also draws him to its image. Baldessari has twinned the palm tree with the image of a brain/cloud, a play on the way we look at clouds to seek out familiar shapes. The "Brain/Cloud" acts as a physical embodiment of the act of creative thinking. Brain/Cloud (With Seascape and Palm Tree) could be seen as an image from the memory of a quintessentially Californian conceptual artist.
