In Jennifer Dalton’s drawings, sculptures and installations she collects, organizes and evaluates cultural information according to her own personal criteria. Her subjects are often chosen in an attempt to test a hypothesis or to dissect a chip on her shoulder.

Her artwork has been featured in 33 Artists in 3 Acts, by Sarah Thornton; Various Small Books, edited by Jeff Brouws, Wendy Burton-Brouws, and Hermann Zscheigner; and Art on the Block: Tracking the New York Art World from Soho to the Bowery, Bushwick and Beyond by Anne Fensterstock. She contributed an essay to the recent collection Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Essays by 40 Working Artists, edited by Sharon Louden.
She earned a B.A. in Fine Art from UCLA in 1990 and an MFA in Painting and Sculpture from Pratt Institute in 1997.
