Ms. Kara Walker is a printmaker, painter, and installation artist that has achieved international recognition for her works of art that are based upon the 19th century. She used cut out silhouettes that depicted slavey and plantation life in the south. Walker took a chance using images that were gruesome. Even though she got flack for images she still kept true to herself as an artists an continue to use slavery depictions that happened in the south. Each of images are uniquely designed and really strikes a cord within the viewer.
