“ My idiosyncratic objects reflect my life experiences, Dada philosophy, and individual aesthetic. My de-constructed found objects that I re-interpret represent the cycle of death and re-birth. It reveals the history of the original object yet places it in a cultural content that is both vernacular and 21st century. My art creates a distinct but unresolved dialogue that is ironic and open to interpretation. 
— Michael Seri
