Jane Dell is a native New Yorker that attended the Art Students League, School of Visual Arts and received her BFA from Pratt Institute.

My current series of mixed media collages on Mylar and acrylic/collage paintings on canvas are an expressionistic and dreamlike journey of images inspired by the continuing damage and threat to our environment by humans. The series fuses an expressive style with various paint mediums and photo/collage elements. The primary subject is animals; endangered, or extinct, fantastical human forms, and contemporary debris that exist within a landscape of imagined chaos. Very often the scene is constructed from the subjects’ point of view, as if the animals and fantastical forms are telling the story. All told the work presents an original and curious universe, a cautionary place that’s disturbing, but perhaps hopeful. It is a world of imaginary dystopia where familiar elements are combined to create an artistically luscious unease.

Dell has exhibited in the Northeast, California, and recently at 111 Front Street and Trestle Gallery, in Brooklyn; The Phatory Gallery, 35 Orchard and Central Booking Gallery in the Lower East Side of New York and the Drawing Rooms Gallery and Goldsmith A Condo Gallery in Jersey City.  Solo exhibitions include The Creative Center in Chelsea, Delaware Valley Arts Alliance in Narrowsburg, NY, The Monmouth Museum and the Drawing Rooms Gallery in New Jersey and a two person exhibit at the Saratoga Springs Art Center. Many of her paintings are in private collections, and recently the Hudson County Community College acquired one of her paintings for their extensive art collection. She was honored for the Jersey City “Curators Choice Exhibition 2013” for best portfolio juried by artist/curator Judith Page. In addition, Jane was accepted to the New York Drawing Center Viewing Program in 2012, and was awarded “Best in Show”, at the NJ Arts Guild, juried by the contemporary art curator of the El Museo del Barrio Museum in New York, Rocio Aranda-Alvarado.

To add to these achievements Jane has been featured in January 2013 “Inside Jersey” magazine and a number of her large paintings were purchased for the permanent collection of NYLO Hotels, Inc., located on 77th Street near Broadway, NYC.
