Jenny Holzer is a conceptual artist that most of her work started in the 1980’s. She is from New York. Holzer wanted to become an abstract painter when she started her education at Duke University. Around the 1970’s she started working with language and art. Jenny Holzer is considered apart of the feminist branch of artists. She is best known for her larger projections on buildings or advertisements. Holzer is not only an artist but also wrote several books. She was the first women to show in Venice Biennale, an exhibit in Italy, for the United States.
Clicking through a few pictures the words are either simple sentences to deep questions that are suppose to make you think. All of her pictures are all in black and white, I believe to make the words pop and keep the building in the background.
The picture above was done in Bregenz in 2004, I like it not only for what it says but how the letters land on the building and ground.
