Penny Dell

Gilded Securities

September 7th — October 31st

Paintings and Monographs by Penny Dell – Inspired by Patterns from the Interiors of Security envelopes

Join us for an Art Reception Sat Sep 15, 5-7 pm. Meet Penny Dell, view exhibit, and enjoy nibbles and refreshments.

Dell, a Hudson Valley artist, recycles patterns from the interiors of security envelopes producing pattern against pattern until each work is reminiscent of a patchwork quilt.  The application of encaustic or gilding onto hand-made paper, woodcuts or monoprint backgrounds individualizes each print.

This exhibit reflects on the concept of security itself, and its iteration in many forms: security blankets, cyber security, homeland security, social security, or securities sold in the stock market.  Dell says: “We yearn for security, but on every level, Security is imperfect. With businesses now encouraging a paperless office, security envelopes may soon be nostalgic collectibles.”

Artwork is for sale through the artist.
