Something serious

Kara Walker – Down in the hole

Kara Walker’s art challenges you to try to interpret the symbolism contained in each depiction. Taking the theme song from the critically acclaimed HBO show The Wire and meshing it with visually thought provoking art is a nice touch. I could get into the significance of her artistic renditions and what they represent but I’d rather hear from you. Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments section.

  1. just got on to browse but had to make a quick comment. i love kara walker’s work. she definitely gives me a jolt when i look at her art. i never know if i should scream, look away, laugh nervously – all that is a good thing in my eyes. i’m hoping to see it in person some day.
