Barbara Kruger – Homage

Born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1945, Barbara Kruger is considered a conceptual artist. Her use of photographs and existing images with bold aggressive statements is the trademark of her work. This is seen with black and white images with the statements written in red, or white on red bases. Working as a graphic designer, art director, and picture editor rounded out her career. Her work questions her audience on ideas of “feminism, classicism, consumerism, and individual autonomy and desire” (http://www.barbarakruger.com/biography.shtml).
