« Art points to things. It's a way of giving people not the standard way of looking at the world. »
Glenn Ligon
Ligon uses his artwork as a platform to explain his own personal experiences with racism and homophobia in the United States, as he has had to deal with both firsthand. He is best known for his text-based paintings, which use words and phrases in varying levels of complexity to show his point of view.
 
« An artwork is an arrangement of things. The ideal show for me would be if everything touched, literally touched,
so that everything would blur together. »

Glenn Ligon


The first painting in which Glenn Ligon used text drew inspiration from the prologue to Ralph Ellison'sInvisible Man. However, despite his success with this style of work, Glenn Ligon does not limit himself to paintings; he has also used photography, installation, sculpture and video to explore the same themes.
