  12. 12. Kerry James Marshall, "Better Homes Better Gardens“ 1994. Acrylic andcollage on unstretched canvas, 100 x 142 inches. Denver Art Museum, SpecialFund. Courtesy Jack Shainman Gallery, New York. "The subject matter seemsin some ways less dramatic than the kinds of subjects represented in traditional history painting. Butthats also a part of what the painting is about. Its about those figures being represented that way: therelationship between this representation of figures and the absence of those kinds of representationsin that historical tradition of grand narrative history painting."— Kerry James Marshall
  13. 13. Kerry James Marshall, "Many Mansions“ 1994. Acrylic and collage on unstretchedcanvas, 114 x 135 inches. Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL. Courtesy Jack ShainmanGallery, New York. "The painting is built around what you could call a very classicallyRenaissance, architectural, or geometric structure. The most obvious thing you can see isthis pyramidal, triangulated structure that the figures are fitted into...One of the reasons Iused that structure was because when I started out the artists and works that I reallyadmired—like Géricaults The [Raft] of the Medusa—that whole genre of history painting,that grand narrative style of painting, was something that I really wanted to position my workin relation to. And so in order to achieve a similar kind of authority that those paintings had...I had to adopt the similar structural format to develop my painting."— Kerry James Marshall

Johnson County Community College, Overland Park, KSCourtesy Jack Shainman Gallery, New York. "The initial development of thatunequivocally black, emphatically black figure was so that I would use them as figuresthat function rhetorically in the painting...And one of the things that I had been thinkingabout when I started to develop that figure was the way in which the folk and folklore pfblackness always seemed to carry a derogatory connotation...A part of what I was thinkingto do with my image was to reclaim the images of blackness as an emblem of power,instead of an image of derision.“ — Kerry James Marshall
  15. 15. Kerry James Marshall, "Our Town“ 1995. Acrylic and collage on unstretched canvas,100 x 124 inches. Collection of the artist, Chicago. Courtesy Jack Shainman Gallery,New York. "The condition of invisibility that Ralph Ellison describes [in Invisible Man] isnot a kind of transparency, but its a psychological invisibility. Its where the presence ofblack people was often not wanted and denied in the American mindset. And so what Iset out to do was to develop a figure or a form that would represent that condition ofinvisibility, where you had an incredible presence, but there was a way in which youcould sometimes be seen and not seen at the same time.“ — Kerry James Marshall

What I hit on as asubject was this idea that, forblack people, the set of superheroes we come to know any-thing about have a lot to do withWest African religious gods in asense."— Kerry James Marshall

"The way I see beauty is as a state of being for athing that has a kind of fascination about it, or as a thing that presents a certain kind offascination to you as a viewer. Its certainly something thats captivating; its somethingsthats compelling. Beauty is a phenomenological experience, and a basic component ofit is intrigue."— Kerry James Marshall

"I wouldnt say that I never think about beauty as an aesthetic issue.But I certainly think its a much more complicated issue then its imagined to be. I thinksometimes when people think of beauty they think of prettiness as a sign of beauty, but itsa lot more complicated and a lot deeper than that."— Kerry James Marshall

"I have two sides: creativityand the architecture. Its got ideas about framing the landscape, being ecologically andenvironmentally sensitive, not that a lot of the artworks arent using recycled materials andabout nature in another way. But formally, I liked that theyre different, that I dont want myarchitecture looking like my sculptures and I dont want the sculptures being at allarchitectonic in their form.“ — Maya Lin

And I just read up on aerospace and flightfor three months and then came up with the idea of the Wave Field, which is basically a book image of a natural occurring water wave that came about because flight requires resistance, and that led toturbulence studies, which led to fluid dynamics."— Maya Lin

  39. 39. Michael Ray CharlesMichael Ray Charles’ paintings investigate stereotypes drawn from thehistory of American advertising, product packaging, billboards, andcommercials. Charles draws comparisons between Sambo, Mammy, andminstrel images of an earlier era and contemporary portrayals of blackyouths, celebrities, and athletes—images he sees as a constant in theAmerican subconscious.The Artist’s Words:"Ive heard a number of things, been called thesellout, the Chris Rock of the art world (I likethat one by the way). And people accuse meand question my blackness—they accuse meof making paintings that deal with these imagesbecause white folks want to see these imagesAnd Im saying to myself, Boy, I dont know, inthat white folks wanted to see these images tolaugh at?“ — Michael Ray Charles What do YOU think?

Ivealways thought of the project as a sort of sexually driven digestive system, that it was aconsumer and a producer of matter. And it is desire driven, rather than driven by hungeror anything like that. Its a desire in the sense of a kind of sexual desire."— Matthew Barney

It started because I had an office job and I wassupposed to wear something respectable to work. But I didn’t have that much money andso I was thinking about how most of the time we can afford one fabulous outfit that youreally love to wear. But there’s some sort of social stigma against wearing the same thingtwo days in a row. So I decided that, in my case, variety seemed more oppressive orrestrictive than continuity. So for each season I’ll make one garment. That’s my fantasygarment or my favorite thing that I can imagine at that period in time, and then Ill wear itevery day for for six months.“ — Andrea Zittel

Obviouslyno one knows how to make something like this, so weve just been trying to figure it out. Ivebeen reading a lot of books on houseboat construction. With the first one that we made, Iactually insisted that it should be made out of concrete, which was probably a mistake. ButI had this idea that concrete was extremely literal. Concretes like rock or earth. “— Andrea Zittel

One was to make history painting in the grand tradition. I love history paintings. I didn’t realize I loved them for a long time. I thought that they were ridiculous in their pompous gesture. But the more I started to examine my own relationship with history, my own attempts to position myself in my historical moment, the more love I had for this artistic, painterly conceit, which is to make a painting a stage, and to think of your characters, your portraits, ascharacters on that stage. And to give them this moment, to freeze-frame a moment that is full of pain and blood and guts and drama and glory.”

Right panel: 103 x 63 inchesCollection of Centro Nazionale per le Arti Contemporanea, Rome, ItalyCourtesy Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York“I was looking at racist paraphernalia, iconography, and then at these accurate versions of middle-classAmericans. I began to associate the silhouette itself, the cutting, with a form of blackface minstrelsy. Here wehave these mainly white sitters or a few slaves who were documented in silhouette—but for the most part whitesitters whom I identify as middle class because upper class would require a full-fledged oil portrait and that’swhat I had already ruled out for myself…’No oil painting here, not going to ape the master that way.’”— Kara Walker

My reference, in mymind, was the surgical theatre paintings of Thomas Eakins and others.” — Kara Walker

Collection of Whitney Museum of American Art,New York. Courtesy Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York"One of the things thats happened here with the work that Ive done is that because it mimics narrative, andnarrative is a kind of given when it comes to work produced by black women in this country, theres almost anexpectation of something cohesive…a kind of Color Purple scenario where things resolve in a certain way. Afemale heroine actualizes through a process of self-discovery and historical discovery and comes out fromunder her oppressors and maybe doesnt become a hero but is a hero for herself. And nothing ever comes ofthat in the pieces that Im making."— Kara Walker

It was just about KingKong looking for the woman,getting the woman, and all histribulations. It was really sort ofmoving. But then I thought, KingKong and the woman are sort ofthe same size in real life. Ithought of making a life-sizesculpture, and then I thought thatwas too ambitious. But I madethe sculpture of King Kong andthe woman together.”— Kiki Smith

I don’t really get homesick that much, but I’ve noticed that I have this longing for a particular spaceand just want to recreate it or bring it wherever I go. So the choice of material was fabric. I had to make somethinglight and transportable, something that you can fold and put in a suitcase and bring with me all the time. That’sactually what happened when I made ‘Seoul Home/L.A.

Courtesy the artist and LehmannMaupin Gallery, New York“I think that by measuring and scrutinizing andinvestigating everything possible you really consume thespace and it becomes part of you. Now you feel like it’s inyou and you feel comfortable. That’s why I did my firstsite-specific installations, and I did the same thing with myKorean house project. But once you take that piece downfrom its site and transport it and display it in a differentplace, the idea of site-specific becomes highly questionableand refutable. That’s what I was really interested inbecause I think this notion of home is something you canrepeat infinitely.”— Do-Ho Suh

It’s alwaysinteresting for me to extend painting a little bit further from myself than it has to be, to make it just a little harderthan it has to be. All of the letters cut out of this piece are glued back in different places, so you have this recessionof space and this built-up space. Then, when you come up to the painting you experience it on several differentlevels.” — Trenton Doyle Hancock
