What is Subtlety...are you?

Maverick men when you hear the word subtlety, what's the first thought that comes to mind? The first thought that comes to my mind is minimal. According to Webster's Dictionary subtlety is defined as a small detail that is usually important but not obvious. If you were to ask Kara Walker the enfamous contemporary African-American artist she would probably tell you to take a trip to Williamsburg in Brooklyn. There has been a buzz in the air about an incredible exhibit by Kara Walker called  "A Subtlety" that has everyone talking. So, I decided to take the subway and go on a journey to Brooklyn's legendary Domino Sugar Factory to see what it was all about. I'm so glad I did. I was completely enamored by all of the amazing artifacts that were created and sculpted by sugar. Yes you read it correctly...sugar. The artist decided that she would pay homage to the unpaid as well as overworked Artisans who have refined our sweet tastes from the cane fields to the Kitchens of the New World through her artwork. Take a look at these photos that I captured. You will be amazed by what you see. If you don't know who Kara Walker is I encourage every maverick man with an appreciation for art to look her up. You will instantly fall in love with her work. Walker conveys her work through race, gender, sexuality, violence and identity.

                  I Say Yes!
