"Holzer belongs to the feminist branch of a generation of artists that emerged around 1980, looking for new ways to make narrative or commentary an implicit part of visual objects. Her contemporaries include Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Sarah Charlesworth, and Louise Lawler." NY TIMES
Most known for her Truthisms series - consisting of projections (on buildings, billboards etc) of a series of statements and aphrosisms. She offers words of hope, but also warnings of a future shadowed with worry and threat to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. She has the ability to articulate the baser instincts unleashed by social chaos in a profound and meaningful way.
