3 Artists

Kara Walker is an African American artist who most famously uses black paper silhouettes to portray scenes of African American history. Because these pieces use only one color and they are created on one plane, size change is the most prominent tool used to create the illusion of space.


Sol LeWitt was a Jewish artist who lived during and after World War 2. He was at the beginning of minimalism, and most of his work uses simple lines to create shapes. His use of linear perspective with these simple lines then has the ability to create form and dimension.


Carrie Moyer is an American artist that was heavily influenced by advocacy for the gay and lesbian community. A lot of her art worked to include this type of political imagery into mainstream media. Her work is mainly abstract, using color, layering, and a sort of transparency and shading to creat the illusion of depth and space.
