This piece was done by a conceptual artist named Martha Wilson. Conceptual art focuses on an idea and this photo does just that. It focuses on the idea of women aging and growing old. Martha focuses on women's idea of wanting Botox or surgery to revise their face. This type of conceptual art is different from traditional art in the sense that we can actually relate to it because of it being from present day and with a focused obvious idea behind it. More traditional based work focus on color and setting rather than the core idea behind it. Conceptual art almost sends more of a strong message to the viewer rather than just a pretty site.
