I just got a rad book from the library called “Family Legacies” and it is about the art of Betye and her two daughters Lezley, and Alison Saar.
Their artwork expresses ideas about gender, race, sexuality, and identity. Assemblages, mixed media, paintings, and sculptures. I am totally amazed. Contemporary artists who are rockin it!
My favorites from the book include:
“Rise Sally Rise” by Alison Saar, “Me, myself, and identity crisis” by Lezley Saar and “Black Girl’s Window” by Betye Saar.
