Renee Cox is a Jamaican-American artist, photographer, lecturer, political activist and curator. Her work is considered part of the feminist art movement in the United States. Among the best known of her provocative works are Queen Nanny of the Maroons, Raje and Yo Mama’s Last Supper, which exemplify her Black Feminist politics. In addition, her work has provoked conversations at the intersections of cultural work, activism, gender, and African Studies. As a specialist in film and digital portraiture, Cox uses light, form, digital technology, and her own signature style to capture the identities and beauty within her subjects and herself.
I am interested in working students who have a passion for photography as we know it and as we don’t know it yet. One of my strengths in working with students is to begin to make them understand how to get out of their own way and not listen to the little voice in their head that creates self destructive patterns. I want them to aim to create works that are derived and developed in the heart and soul and then manufactured and marketed with the brain, particularly through the vehicle of self portraiture.
