Artist Crush: Amze Emmons

March 1st, 2012 · 4 Comments

Amze Emmons is featured in the latest New American Paintings (98). I love the large swaths of negative space, and the pops of bright colors that act as a reminder of hope in the otherwise dismal landscapes.

“For several years my artwork has begun as an investigation of images found in documentary sources… I start with clippings depicting refugee camps, wreckage left after receding floodwaters, car bombings. Through erasure, drawing and collage, visual connections between disparate events form and something new emerges.” – Amze Emmons, NAP 98
