Beginning in the mid 1980s, and until his tragic death in 1991, the doors to the pantheon of significant contemporary artists were open to Joseph Amar [1954-2001].

While paralyzed and bed-ridden, his life’s work was buried in storage for decades. It has now emerged to illuminate his position as one of the period’s most innovative artists.
