"My world is one of lyrical images — drawn, etches, painted, shaped, cut, fragmented, assembled and discovered in the spontaneous process of making art. These lyrical images celebrate the beauty and energy I experience in nature, alive with dynamic change… landscape patterns shaped by natural forces such as wind, climate, quality of light and atmosphere. They celebrate my fascination with distant and past cultures, discovered through travel and revealed in fragments of architecture and artifacts, allowing me to make connections with my own particular visual sensibility through the patina of time. The discoveries, the manipulations, the choices I make, are the ultimate realization of my own sense of awareness." — Delbert Michel.
