Kara Walker

The artist I really liked was Kara walker. I love the fact that she can make anything she wants out of a piece of paper. I also like her ideas. When her exhibitions are displayed the illusions are strong and visible. Her focus on black cut outs also make me wonder, why the option of black? Her work is pretty amazing.

  1. I believe she chose black for several reasons-- one is that her work is based on the Victorian medium of the silhouette, which was traditionally done in black. It also helps address the issues surrounding race relations, content that she embraces in her work (the black silhouettes are contrasted against the white gallery walls-- the individual versus the institution).
