Conceptual Art - Martha Wilson
I can't help but start out and say how hard I laugh when I see this image. This is why i chose Martha Wilson as my conceptual artist to blog about. This image is called "I Have Become My Own Worst Fear". All of her art work is about how women change as they grow old and want to do nothing but change themselves. This is an example of conceptual art because of the previous sentence. All of her art work is about one concept, in women never seeing themselves as pretty as they age and wanting to change themselves with makeups and surgeries and creams that do not work. This art is something all women can relate to. Even being only 20 years young, I am consistently thinking about how everything I do will only leave more wrinkles on my forehead later on in life. Her art leaves a message to everyone to laugh about how involved we get in our self image to and to try and break away from it. This is what we see as ugly in aging, but hey we can't stop gravity from working her magic.
