Kara Walker | Complex Silhouettes

At first glance, Kara Walker's artwork may resemble illustrations of a children's fairytale. However Walker's art is complex and Walker is described as one of few who have been able to powerfully and provocatively address issues of race, sex, and the history of slavery.
As a result of her mesmerizing work, Kara Walker won a MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" at 28 (one of the youngest-ever recipients), a spot on Time magazine's 100 Most Influential list, and exhibitions at some of the most respected museums in the US.
