I’m intrigued that Jason Wu used a small Kara Walker-inspired print on some of his clothes for Fall 2009.
Walker is one of my favorite artists, and, if you’ve seen her work, you’ll know that she critiques the institution of slavery through the beautiful medium of silhouette cuts. I've posted about her before here.
There’s a tension, then, between the delicacy of the profiles she cuts and the horrors she depicts. I *really* wonder what Walker-inspired print Wu is using!
