Jenny Holzer

Jenny Holzer was born in 1950 in Gallipolis, Ohio. She currently lives and works in New York. She attended several colleges such as Duke University, University of Ohio, Ohio University is Athens and also the Rhode Island School of Design. She studied abstract art and was influenced by Such artists as Rothko and Morris Louis.

Jenny likes to experiment with the use of language as art. She created a series called “Truisms” that came from Western and Eastern literature. She simplified writings and turned them into smaller phrases so that anyone could understand them. I thought that was very creative. Her work is very different and unique in its own way.
