<<I made slides of silhouette examples (sorry I don't have titles/will look
up) and then introduced Kara Walker as a contemporary exemplar of an artist
using silhouettes in a narrative way>>
Thanks for the info on Kara Walker--I wasn't aware of her work. Powerful
stuff it is, and what a technique.... I read through several online articles
about her work, and it's interesting how the community of contemporary black
artists is so split in its opinion of her and her work.
You're right, though--while this is a good tie-in to the colonial use of
silhouette, the websites featuring Walker's work are NOT the type to
randomly pull up during class....
Featuring art and art lesson plans, examples of my
artwork, genealogy resources, information about
contra dancing and Celtic music--and more!
