Kara walkers images are really about racism in the present, and the vast social and economic inequalities that persist in dividing America. More like riddles than one liners, these are complex, multi-layered works that reveal their meaning slowly over time. Kara walker said I make art for anyone who’s forgot what it feels like to put up a fight’ kara walker uses the black silhouette to emphasise her art which when you look closely the horrors of black oppression becomes paramount.
