Jamaican-born Renee Cox has become one of the most controversial African-American artists working today. She uses figures in her photography to celebrate black womanhood and to explore racism, gender, and religion in our society. Renee Cox continues to push the envelop in her work, questioning society and the roles it gives to blacks and women with her elaborate scenarios and imaginative visuals that offend some and exhilarate others.
