OEN's John Reed liked my previous article showing works by Jenny Holzer, and he sent me an internal OEN mail identifying three of her works at Artnet's Artist Works Catalogs and requesting they be included in a second Jenny Holzer article. John's favorites are the third, the sixth, and the ninth images following the picture of the artist.

Enjoy the following works by the world-famous "wordy-ist" artist of our times, the great, the only Jenny Holzer:
Little Queenie, from the 'Living' Series (1982), by Jenny Holzer and Artnet's Artists Work Catalogs
The image's depicted work is made of metal print on enamel. It is an excellent example of Ms. Holzer's epigrammatic word-works.
An Unnamed Word-Work, from the 'Survival' Series (1985), by Jenny Holzer and Artnet's Artists Work Catalogs
The image's depicted work is a silkscreen on brushed aluminum.
Installation Featuring the 'Living' Series (2005), by Jenny Holzer and Artnet's Artists Work Catalogs
The image is a photograph of an installation composed entirely of Ms. Holzer's epigrammatic word-works. The installation was at Cheim and Read, New York, and the word-works all consisted of hand-painted enamel on metal. The image shows the effect when a large number of Ms. Holzer's word-works are mounted together in an installation in an art museum.
A Selection, from the 'Truisms' Series (1986), by Jenny Holzer and Artnet's Artists Work Catalogs
The image is a photograph of an LED taken at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas; the installation was organized by the Nevada Institute of Contemporary Art, at the University of Nevada - Las Vegas.
An Installation at the List Visual Arts Center, Boston (1987), by Jenny Holzer and Artnet's Artists Work Catalogs
The image is a photograph of a cast bronze plaque on the wall behind a drinking fountain. The plaque says, "The mouth is interesting because it is one of those places where the dry outside moves toward the slippery inside."
