The party is over, but the bits of wrapping paper, bows and ribbon are strewn on the floor, decorative streamers dangle overhead and leftover cake is crusting-up on the counter. These relics have a power to haunt the psyches of guests, hosts and celebrants. When visually isolated and rendered as icons of half-remembered cheer they become the poetically resonant subject of Jeffrey Dell’s prints.
