PROJECT 4

The assignment is to write a research paper on a primary theme that runs through a selected artist’s work.  I chose Jenny Holzer who is less than a year older than I am.  It is amazing to study her process and to witness her evolution as an artist.  The central theme of Jenny Holzer’s art is her text:
