Jane Dell / Other Voice on Green

Environmental Chaos Series
My inspiration is nature, which increasingly finds itselfin a losing
battle for survival. The balance that once existed between people
and the planet is being replaced by confusion and concerns about
the future. Things are spinning out of control.
Using the artistic tools I’ve developed over a lifetime my paintings
create tension and meaning through contrast. Seductive and
pleasant images are played off against images that are
unexpected and uncomfortable. Lyrical forms contrast with
geometric shapes. Lush, rich colors bump up against
monochromatic fields. The result is a whirlwind surface
in which shapes and forms race across the picture frame
and dart in and out in 3-dimensions providing a
visual equivalent of the disconnect between human beings
and the natural world.
Jane Dell was born in New York City and began her study of art
at the High School of Music and Art, Art Students League and
Pratt Institute. Many people have influenced her recent work,
but her painting/printmaking teacher from Pratt Institute,
Jack Sonnenberg, instilled a love and respect for art history
and the creative process that has remained with her to this day.
Her work has been selected for many group and solo shows in
New Jersey and New York, including City Without Walls
Gallery, Montclair State University Gallery, George Segal Gallery,
1978 Gallery in Maplewood, Kling Gallery in Montclair, New Jersey,
the Creative Center Gallery located at 147 West 26th St., NYC
and recently the White Space Gallery in New Haven, CN. She
has also sold works to private collectors and designers.
