Martin Amorous: Recent Black & White Work

The University Art Gallery is proud to present Martin Amorous: Recent Black & White Work. Amorous’ unflinching black and white lines and drips work together to suggest a vast landscape while incorporating subtle interventions from the artificial world. He explores this post-apocalyptic landscape through large-scale paintings, small works on paper, and short animations.

Amorous retired from Sam Houston State University in 2020 after 25 years of dedication to the growth of the Department of Art. In 1995, Amorous began his career in the Department teaching painting, drawing, including, and setting up the first animation studio for the department. He became Chair of the Department of Art in 1996 and, eight years later, returned to teaching full-time.

Martin received a BFA in Painting and Art History and an MA in Painting, with a minor in Art History, from the University of New Mexico and an MFA in Painting from the University of Arizona. Amorous currently lives and works in Willis, Texas, with his wife, artist Cynthia Reid.
