Along with artists like Richard Prince, Louise Lawler or Barbara Kruger, she took part of the « Pictures Generation », a group of artists characterised by their use of appropriation in an age where society was being saturated by images. She is known for her series of re-photographed works by famous photographers like Eliot Porter, Edward Weston or Walker Evans.
Her production includes a wide range of medium such as photography, painting or sculpture. She has worked with the concept of appropriation for more than 30 years, revisiting works from various modern artists and thus questioning the set of values they represent. Notions of talent or authenticity become irrelevant – her works often being produced in series by specialised artisans following her instructions.
