Jenny Holzer creates public text artwork. Her pieces address a variety of social issues. I can really relate to her work because of the social commentary aspects. She addresses things that “make the world turn, and in particular, turn for the worse.” She continues on that she focuses on the bad because she believes that “the good things will take care of themselves.” I like that.
I think I need to come up with a good reason as to why I focus on serious issues. I think it might be because I have things to say that can best be said through art. I want to make people aware of what is going on so that they can make a difference.
Jenny’s work also relates to mine in the use of text.
