Barbara Kruger is a conceptual artist who creates mock propaganda consisting of photographs culled from the mass media superimposed with ironic and politically charged slogans.

Note that this work is so large (8 feet wide) that using the TrueSize option does not yield a very satisfactory result. You do get a sense of the size of the work, which is otherwise not obvious, but examining detail images is not that helpful in appreciating this kind of "word art".
