“I used language because I wanted to offer content that people – not necessarily art people – could understand,” said Jenny Holzer, explaining her use of text-based art. Holzer is an American Neo-Conceptual artist noted for her public art. She rose to prominence shortly after her Truisms series of the late 1970s. Among her popular works is a quote that reads, “Abuse of power comes as no surprise.” This particular piece is available as a poster and matching artist’s book in the upcoming Art / Design + Rare Ephemera event, offered by Vallot Auctioneers. The line has appeared on billboards, posters, LED screens, and light projects across the United States.
