About The Artwork

Directly inspired by the Jan 2018 Hawaii false missile alert incident. If anyone can remember his exact electronic freeway message flashed for a few hours & was necessary to end hysteria but I saw it as relevant and interesting to me on a different level. What really made me want to paint this is how the context around the message can constantly change. I was thinking through early ecological and environmental perspectives as well. I want to explore the connections between humans and the environment, specifically our coastal environments with my work while continuing to keep some humor and absurdity. I also thought it was important to start with this because it shows my interest in including text & current events.

Jess Bellamy was born in Whittier, CA and lives & works in Los Angeles, CA. She received a B.A. in Political Science from USC in 2014 and is an MFA candidate at USC Roski School of Fine Arts. Bellamy’s interest in the environment, years spent working at KCRW, and personal and familial histories as a woman of Afro-Cuban and Jewish descent greatly influence the themes and world-making in her work. Predominantly an oil painter, Bellamy also works with image transfer and assemblage, using the familiarity of the Southern California landscape and aesthetics to connect shared visual references, presenting compositions that are dream-like narratives giving form to unseen or alternative possibilities. Her work has been included in thematic exhibitions such as Boiling Point (2019) and Parallel Realities and Unpopular Truths (2020) with Superposition Gallery. She is an active member of The Circuit, a Black Arts Coalition, focusing on academic and art market reform. @jbellzamy
