"Four Seasons, The Fall," by Kara Walker, in the New York Times, 2008

Kara Walker NYT "It dominates everything, yet within it Ms. Walker finds a chaos of contradictory ideas and emotions. She is single-minded in seeing racism as a reality, but of many minds about exactly how that reality plays out in the present and the past. For her the reliable old dualities — white versus black , strong versus weak, victim versus predator — are volatile and shifting. And she uses her art — mocking, shaming, startlingly poignant, excruciatingly personal — to keep them this way.”

Work by Kara Walker, contemporary African American artist who explores race, gender, sexuality, violence and identity in her work. She is best known for her room-size tableaux of black cut-paper silhouettes, such as The Means to an End--A Shadow Drama in Five Acts.

kara walker; if your head is empty, art is empty. But when you stop and think when you see art, you can see the implications here; the woman's self forced self nurturing; the boy's entitlement to her natural, strange body, and the fact that he takes now as a child and will take later as an adult
