Through the lens of self-discovery, Jeremy Bell creates lifelike portraits of people. The images of men and women are reflections of Bell’s lived influence and his intimate inspirations brought to the surface by his bond with his Mother, Brother, Aunt and Grandmother. This display of fond, and familiar faces accurately resembles the essence of this exhibition title, Utopian Blackness.
Jeremy Bell: Utopian Blackness masterfully uses ink, graphite, charcoal, spray paint, wood and wax, all to frame the ordinary beauty of “just being you,” while elevating the relevance of identity found in a Utopian Blackness.
