Renee Cox


Jamaican-born New York-based artist Renee Cox is best known for her bold, nude self-portraits. For over 20 years, Cox has used her images to deconstruct the sexism and racism that black women often face.

Religion also plays a major part in Cox’s imagery. In this short interview from The Bholdr, Cox, who attended Catholic school in her youth talks about supremacy in religion, as well as the photographic process. She also touches on the significance of nudity in her work and her feelings about the various criticisms that her work has received over the years.
