Jenny Holzer

An artist who seems to be truly moved by the art of words, Jenny Holzer primarily creates projections that are projected onto buildings in prominent cities. Her works appear to have a variety of meanings. Some of which are politically fueled, a short form of poetry, a metaphor, or have no meaning at all. She received a BA from Ohio University in Athens in 1972 and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence in 1977. Some motifs in her work seem to be death and disease. By making use of the public space, Holzer’s work overcomes bias of people. Art in public spaces affects a great variety of people, and not just those who would have gone to see the art in a gallery for example. Her work, literally says something that could have a vast effect on numerous people. Personally, I think her work has a lot of good elements going for it. You rarely see a fine, visual artist who uses words and language in their work often. But I am also really interested in the use of language, words, and metaphors. I also like the idea of making work that is consumed by hundreds of unsuspecting individuals. Comment; write what you think of Jenny Holzer’s work.
