APMA Arts : 'History Within' by Jeremy Bell

Raised by a single mother, grandmother and two aunts, Jeremy’s work – a combination of drawing and painting - pays homage to the women who raised him. By combining abstraction and representation he creates female figures that are contemplative, sensual, and evocative of the 70s-era diva. They are direct, in control and defy the male gaze. The installations encourage dialogue on susceptibility to influence and notions of gender and self-worth, particularly in the African American community. Thanks to all who supported Jeremy and the Omaha art scene by joining for the opening last Thursday, September 26th! The exhibit is up through the end of the year, so don’t be a stranger now! Gallery open Monday - Friday 8 AM - 5 PM, the work is available for purchase with 100% of proceeds going to the artist!
