Emily Roz’s vibrant oil paintings may leave you feeling slightly umoored. She creates a bright and upbeat dissonance. The female body parts she jigsaws into intensely colored and striped planes are at once familiar and abstract. The anonymous body in the paintings is actually hers, which brings to mind Christina Ramberg’s headless figures, or Maria Lassnig’s studies. Roz’s message is clear: She is simply a body, one that can be objectified. —E.C.
