When I Grow Up: The Ascribed Black American Dream, Edition of 3, 2009 , Color reduction woodcut and monoprint on paper, 42 x 90 inches

Katrina Andry, a native of New Orleans, explores the negative effects stereotypes have on African Americans, and how they are interpreted in modern day society. Her work is a visual representation of perception; of how people view one another which is not necessarily a realistic one.

Her work is an exploration of how the West perceives the Other.
