About Jeffrey Dell (Juror)
“My work over the last few years engages themes of human desire and its effects on perception, impulse, appetite, and health. I am earnest about the playfulness in the work, and I rarely want to mean only one thing in an image. I continue to love the way two-dimensional images elicit just what I thought they would not.”

Jeffrey Dell lives and works in San Marcos, Texas. He is an Associate Professor of Printmaking in the School of Art and Design at Texas State University-San Marcos. Dell regularly exhibits at Art Palace Gallery in Houston and Galleri Urbane in Dallas, and has shown at the International Print Center New York, The Print Center in Philadelphia and at venues abroad.
