like this...




























Does the art take on a different meaning when you find out the artist isn't Black?









ARTIST BIOGRAPHY



Sara Golish is an emerging visual artist born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Since putting pencil to paper as a toddler, she knew her passion was to become an Artist. After excelling in the Windsor Center for the Creative Arts during high school, she moved to Toronto in hopes of seeking a more challenging artistic environment at the Ontario College of Art & Design. There she received her BFA in 2008 for Drawing & Painting, acquiring the Eric Freifeld Award for ‘Proficiency in draughtsmanship.’ In 2011 to expand upon her visual language, she completed courses at George Brown College in graphic & web design and development.

Sara has also completed extensive work as a decorative painter, which has included designing and painting murals, bas relief, gilding and faux finishes in traditional and contemporary styles. She has worked on high-end residential, corporate and retail interior design projects for places in Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Sarasota and Barbados. Sara has also sub-contracted work for those such as Brian Gluckstein, Chapman Design Group, Yabu Pushelberg, Douglas Design, Munge Leung, Andrew Ness, and Jay Hodgins, to name a few.

Presently Sara is based out of Toronto, Ontario, working as a Freelance Artist who specializes in figurative and portrait drawing and painting.

I don't like that the faces are basically the same for the grey scale images. Which is why I'm not moved by them. 

I like a couple of the color images.

I think that's what drew me into them

It's amazing to me how different they all look and she, literally, only changed the styling of the hair

It is still meaningful to me, and makes me happy that the artist can capture the beauty and uniqueness of our culture and features even though she is a different race. Usually her people have us lookin like this:

I think for a lot of folks it does make a difference. I remember the top pics being posted before and getting kudos. Now I'm sure it will be shaded and things found wrong with the images. Plus...the question will always be is this true appreciation or another case of whitey making money off our image. That said I do like the first pics.

Interesting perspective

I think it matters to some people too... just like the reverse does. I remember Kara Walker's art being posted and the question arising if anyone would feel differently if the artist hadn't been Black and many people admitted they would

Not at all.

Like nala said, I choose not to perceive it negatively. I think it's dope she appreciates our beauty.
