BARBARA KRUGER "STAMPS", 1990/2013
Barbara Kruger is one of the world's most provocative, distinctive and original artists.
In 2005, she was awarded the "Leone d'Oro" for lifetime achievement by the Venice Biennale.
In 2010, Kruger completed one of her largest public commissions when she covered the Frank Gehry-designed facade of the Art Gallery of Ontario with her signature slogans.
Her work can be found in every major museum's collection around the world.
Her text-based works are iconic, immediately recognizable, and unforgettable.
"Stamps" is unmistakably Kruger - white futura bold font encased within a bold red square atop an appropriated black & white image. This work is a variation on an earlier work from 1990 and features 81 standard stamp-sized images on adhesive paper. There are nine unique images that repeat in a grid of 3 x 3. The nine images are differentiated by their single-word slogans describing various feelings and emotional states. Included are: "Happy", "Sad", "Tense", "Hopeful", "Doubtful", "Relaxed", "Alive", "Awake", and "Asleep".
