More information about this artwork

In Person with Guitar Baldessari uses humor to blur photographic meaning. He produced this iconic artwork in 3 distinct layers to provide a more sculptural feel to further slow us down and to aid us in looking at this image in new ways. By cutting out the guitar Baldessari allows the viewer to dig beneath the surface and see what this photograph is really about. To realize that you sometimes have to ignore what's in the center and look to the sides to better understand the story.
