walkerkara-malefigurehigh-1

This project reminds me of an artist I admire, Kara Walker. Kara Walker uses silhouettes to produce sexually charged and controversial pieces, often reflecting on the past. They illicit a very charged reaction from the audience, and I find there is just enough direction in her work that the audience can interpret close to what her intention is. With project 1-2 I want to find a balance between representing the literal and a greater meaning/direction.
