IM Hyperessay: Artist & work selection

Standard

As previously mentioned, the artist I chose is Jenny Holzer. A conceptual artist living in New York. She mostly uses text in her works to express her ideas which sometimes includes feminist ideas. She stresses social consciousness or the lack thereof in today’s society, and her single liners are meant to trigger conversations about the issue at hand.

The artwork I have chosen is “Red Yellow Looming”. This was displayed alongside many of her other works in a similar theme, in Jenny Holzer: Protect Protect, in Whitney Museum of American Art.
