Art & Today /Narrative

Art 21: Story Reaction

Kara Walker at the San Paulo Bienal
Illusion of past events and not know but actually a blend of sterotypes from the old south and racial tensions of now
Story telling like Gone with the Wind
Dilemna of drama of the story and the heroine
The silhouette helps with the illude the image to the viewer
Walker’s childhood in racial south directly effected her views of architypes and her art
The story is our record

Mark Tansey

The Innocent Eye Test 1981, 78 x 120 in.

"In Tansey's painted metaphor for the perception of art, we are the cow,
and the scientists want to know how and what we see --- hardly the
stuff of Frank Stella's famous dictum "What you see is what you see."

From Judi Freeman Mark Tansey
