JENNY HOLZER "CERAMIC CHARGER", 2002
Jenny Holzer's menacing (and sometimes humorous) "Truisms" first appeared in the late 1970's in a variety of forms, but initially oriented towards a type of street art.
Over the past three decades Holzer has created an impressive oeuvre consisting of objects, sculpture and public art...often revisiting the slogans and sayings she first embraced in the early 1980's. Holzer has focused on perhaps a dozen of the original "Truisms" and revisted them in an array of media ranging from billboards to t-shirts, from marble benches to pencils.
Holzer's text-based pieces have provoked the public to consider the power structures that surround us.
In today's frightening political climate, any element of humor or mischief inherent in her work has been eclipsed by satire, cynicism and fear.
This complementary set of beautifully glazed ceramic chargers boast two of Holzer's most famous slogans:
Money Creates Taste
All Things Are Delicately Interconnected
This is a remarkable and affordable multiple by this inimitable artist. While Caviar20 focuses on Jenny Holzer multiples, this is the first time we've seen this piece offered on the secondary market.

Occasionally we will recommend that an artwork be removed from its frame for shipping. Larger framed works are typically framed with plexiglass. We export over 80% of what we sell, so we are comfortable shipping anywhere.
