RYAN LEE presents Emma Amos: Black Bodies, an exhibition of paintings by the artist and educator. Amos, known for her witty, probing, and masterfully colored figurative paintings, began her career in New York in the early sixties. She was the youngest and only female member of the African American artist group Spiral and worked as a textile designer for Dorothy Liebes while she established herself as an artist. Spanning four decades, Black Bodies highlights Amos’s continued celebration of the black body as a source and site of power and beauty.
