2.3 Recreation Ideas

I want to use Kara Walker’s idea of silhouettes and representation of stereotypes throughout history. However, i would combine it with Kehinde Wiley’s depictions of modern day urban black males. My plan is to stage a photo shoot of a number of black men/boys depicting numerous stereotypes. After printing it, I will use Ingrid Callamay’s method of tracing over it, and I will relay the outline to a canvas and/or appropriate size paper and paint it in the form of a silhouette. Here’s a random pic off of google and a quick recreation to show what the final outcome may be similar to. ImageImage
