UNTITLED WITH SELECTIONS FROM TRUISMS (ABUSE OF POWER...)
© 2001 Jenny Holzer / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York
Born in Gallipolis, Ohio, Jenny Holzer has established a reputation for her installation sculpture, especially stone benches with carved text inscriptions. Her intention has been for the primordial form of the granite to convey the idea one is among ruins.

Jenny Holzer was raised in Lancaster, Ohio and eventually settled in Hoosick Falls, New York. In 1968, she attended Duke University and studied under abstract artist Vernon Pratt. In 1972, she earned a BFA from Ohio University at Athens (showing 500 of 1120 characters).
