Lot Essay


I surprised myself, actually, when I began working [in silhouette] how well it suited my personality, sort of polite, mute... and how well it seemed to exemplify the experience of women and blacks as second class citizens. This was a craft form that was (and is) everywhere, but rarely attains a high status. Silhouette cutting for me was my rebellion against high art and painting and to me a way of undermining the patriarchal tendency in western art.
—Kara Walker
