Barbara Kruger

I think these are my favorite Barbara Kruger works. I love words. I love art. I love pop culture. I love mixed messages. I love how she swirls all of it together resulting in large-scale works (the Marilyn works pictured below each measure about 85" x 49" / 216 x 125 cm) that pack a visual punch.

Hmmmmmmmm I like it. I think it would impact me more if I could see them in real-life and how big they are. Right now, my mind is just kinda like.... hmmmmmm... I love the last one the most, actually.

Much Love,
Trissta

They're like taking Andy Warhol's idea one step further. They make me feel slightly uncomfortable, but that's not a bad thing. When an art form does that, the senses are more aware.
Must agree with the majority, love the last one.

If I ever own a home, or even get an apartment, I would love to hang these on my walls.
