As Is: Women Exposed, consists of female nudes made in studio settings without artifice or glamour. Amy Gelb's plain-spoken, yet graceful portraits invite the viewer to engage in a conversation about women, self-image, and how we define true beauty. By cropping closely into her subjects, Gelb literalizes the compartmentalization of the female form and recreates the fragmentation of a woman's identity. Her subjects are anonymous and are free to express themselves fully without fear of consequence.
Amy Gelb was born in New York City, and currently resides and works in Miami Beach. She is a graduate from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. Gelb’s work has been featured in prominent art galleries in South Florida, and during Art Basel. For more information, visit: http://www.amygelb.com/index
