Jeffrey Dell is too busy making new work to worry about a website. That creates a unique opportunity for Printeresting to share his beautiful screenprints with you- Jeff gave us permission to post these studio, proof, and process pics. His new series, Frenemies, features intense color explorations with layer upon layer of screen ink. Building simple cakelike forms, he creates visual confectionary treats.
You may recall our Texas State Printshop Tour from the summer. Jeff teaches print there and, at the time, he had a work station set up with screens. He mentioned something about plans for layering color but he was just getting the series started so there wasn’t too much to see. I didn’t know he’d be combining gratuitous (that’s my word) split fountains and seemingly every color in the rainbow to make cohesive images that dazzle. To quote Dell in regard to sharing the images digitally, “the fluorescence will never translate.” I may have to head back soon to see these in person (and get more pictures). For now, check out these images and more after the jump…
I should also mention that Dell and three of his former Texas State students recently had a works on paper show at D. Berman Gallery in Wimberley, TX. You can see pictures HERE. I had hoped to get there to review the show but somehow the month got away from me.Bookmark / Share / Print
