    Jenny Holzer

    I hear Jenny Holzer’s name and i think of neon words in empty white spaces.  She was invited to do a commencement show at my college which she accepted but then refused to give a commencement speech saying she only speaks through her work never outside of it.

    Sounded silly to me, but Then i see these pieces and it really throws me for a loop.  I can see now how, when you’re entire medium is words you must be careful when you speak.

    These aren’t ideal sentiments, in fact they’re pretty toxic, but reading them has a cathartic feel.

    This guy owes a lot to Jenny Saville, but she doesn’t make as much work as she use to.  So I’m happy to goggle at these for a while.  Sort of like how Foster the People debut their album when there was no new music coming out.  Just filling a void really.

    Though these sort of look like American Apparel models turned into paintings.  Missing Saville’s serious subject matter.

    Whatever look at them brush strokes.  Also, squares!
