Kara Walker

Kara Walker is an African-American contemporary artist, and her works cover various subjects of life, such as race, sexuality, feminism, gender, and violence. She uses cut-paper silhouette against a white wall to make the contrast emotionally deeper.

Oh she used to live in Stone Mountain, GA!

You can see the exhibition she did, My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love at Whitney Museum.

She is visually straight up and shows the dark part of the history and the dark side of human nature... It's really narrative, isn't it?
