What does it mean to be seen? What happens when a culture is marginalized? These are among the questions multimedia artist Katharen Wiese seeks to explore in her work. The artist hopes to represent the humanity and dignity of Black and multi-racial people through her imagery as she explores the intersections of race, gender, and identity. Wiese, who is Black, carves large woodcut figures.
