Emma Amos

Emma Amos utilized various media throughout her career, including collage, painting, photo transfer, and traditional printmaking. As a Black woman from the South, Amos created politicized, imagist, and figural works to challenge racism and sexism in America. Her art invites commentary on color, investigating “the otherness often seen by white male artists, along with the notion of desire, the dark body versus the white body, and [her] wish to provoke more thoughtful ways of thinking and seeing.”
