I have threatened to find John Baldessari's house for a couple years and I can cross that off the Artist Stalking list as of last week. Above is the video still from A Brief History of John Baldessari and below is his house. The foliage has grown considerably between the two.
Of all the artist's houses I have seen, this one is my favorite (read: I am most envious of this location and design = this is something to strive for one day).
There were two visits to this Venice Beach complex because I neglected to bring the big camera the first time. This blown out photograph features the front door open (!) and evidence of someone moving around in the house (!!).
The second day, the sun was in a better position (damn this winter light) and the front door was closed.
Also, see that bush on the far right of the house in the photograph below?
A piece of Camden's Rock was tossed there.
Next up... Ed Ruscha.
