A Beatbox Caviar
Opening reception MAy 12th 6-11pm
Fort Works Art is thrilled to present artist Jeremy Joel's first solo exhibition, A Beatbox Caviar.
Unconventional in style, Joel’s highly-personal painting and installation works serve as a peephole into his past, offering a reflection on his upbringing and life-events that have forged his belief in zero absolutes.
A self-taught artist, Joel has been active in the burgeoning Fort Worth arts scene for over a decade. Since 2007, he has produced a recognizable lineup of works that includes murals for CUT Hair Salon, Urban Outfitters, Spiral Diner, Daggett Montessori, Brik Venue, Inspiration Alley in The Foundry District and a three-part mural for FWISD. Since transitioning to canvas work, he has continued to cultivate a distinctive style. His raw and edgy pieces incorporate a strong personal iconography with found materials and text elements that enhance their narrative, “story scene” aspects, reflecting his fascinating past, the denial of absolutes in his belief system.
A Beatbox Caviar opens May 9, 2018 and runs through June 30. A special Opening Reception will be held on May 12, 2018 and will include rooftop performances by Ruben Salazar, California-based artist Nesma Jones, and inside dj Bilal.
