Pastoral
Kara Walker

Pastoral
1998

From Wall Works
Wall painting in black; size 183 cm (6") tall.
Limited to 15 installations, with a signed
and numbered certificate.


Walker says: »This piece (Pastoral) is a departure from the bulk of my work which is situated in a fictionalized version of the Antebellum South, which is the hub where profane racial mythologies shake hands with the mundane reality of day to day existence in a racially divided culture. This is a quiet little contemplative piece in which a Negress of Renown dons sheep´s clothing, or is dry humped by its filthy little self.«
