Artist STATEMENT

Jane Dell's paintings and mixed media collages on Mylar have shapes, gestures and forms that are inspired from fleeting glimpses of memory, and can be seen to co-exist in a visual narrative. This narrative is complex both in formal terms and in its associations and metaphors. She often equates her abstract forms to parts of the natural world that continuously inspire her. Dell values 'touch' and color as an expressive function of painting as well as a major contribution to non-linguistic, non-linear narrative.
