“My work displays a delicate sense of equipoise” explains Delfs “creating an unfamiliar sensuality by erupting from surfaces, recalling corporeal and architectonic topographies. Luminous prismatic shapes tend to hover in space, on the floor or attached to walls. Non-orientable surfaces orchestrate interplay of reconfigurable forms which imply continuous expansion and protracted stillness”.
