"Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul — and you answer." -Terri Guillemets
U.S PRESIDENTIAL SCHOLAR IN THE ARTS 2017 NATIONAL YOUNGARTS WINNER 2017
Who Am I? My name is Elle Cox. I am an artist and a photographer. Throughout the years of developing my bodies of work, I have been astonished by the social constructs of my heritage, by the objectification of the Black female body, and of the society we live in. My work focuses on the relationship of Black femininity and my overall experience as a Black female, while looking to the past and the present. My work is an act of both lamentation and rejoice. Beyond my artist portfolio, I do event photography and portraiture.
