Baldessari's approach in his art work is really simple, but somehow it always caught my eyes. He usually uses bright and bas colours paper cut into simple shapes and sticks them on human body. Sometimes as a circle, and sometimes as a replication of the face or body of figures in the image. I associate his work to surrealism because of the absence of identity. The figures in his work is often hidden under the paper colour, but judging from their position, I can still tell what's going on in the scene. The use of black and white in contrast with added colour is really nice, and it's why I keep looking back to his work. He sometimes chooses to leave some areas out of the colour paper collage such as the nose and the ear. I think this is clever since, it would just be a paper cut out into human shape. The non-covered nose and ears reminds the audience that his work is after all a collage piece.

It seems that only one image has been used to create this collage because all the texture in the piece is similar but with cutouts. The style is simple but very unique, as the rearranging process makes the object or the original unrecognizable and abstract. It also creates the atmosphere like a dream with how each part of the image is cut out with wiggling lines. I could use this technique as a background and having a figure in the foreground. The types of photo I choose to do this technique should be quite simple and not so much colours so that the rearranging and the cutting lines would show.
