Caution: The World Of Black and White Ahead

If you get offended easily and don’t appreciate a different approach to art, then please avert your eyes….

Kara Walker is a contemporary African American artist who explores race, gender, sexuality, violence and identity in her silhouettes. She is most well known for her cut paper silhouettes, but also has videos and books too. I’ve had the pleasure of seeingĀ The Puppet Show at the Frye Museum in Seattle, WA.
