Have You Seen His New Pieces?

At 80 something years old, John Baldessari is still killing it with his paintings. In his new body of work, he samples and pairs works of art from two different artists onto one canvas, then finishes it off with his own layer of Baldessari-ness. Leaving only one artist's name on the bottom of each canvas, viewers are left to guess who the other artist might be. Is Baldessari testing our art history knowledge? Should've paid more fucking attention in art history class! Check out his new show at Margo Leavin Gallery in West Hollywood. (images: Margo Leavin Gallery)
