Michael DeLucia is known for taking standard materials and industrially produced items and giving them sculptural integrity, completely disassociating the object from its previous use. DeLucia's most recent work introduces digital rendering and industrial machinery to create plywood abstract reliefs, creating an aesthetic process and a working method that are unwaveringly idiosyncratic and new.

Unafraid to remove all context, DeLucia plays with scale, deceptively-simple compositions and multiplicity which serves to abstract his works.

Until recently DeLucia produced work by hand with clay but his practice has since shifted into the digital realm with his current work heavily influenced by computer applications and CAD modelling software.

Formerly an assistant of Jeff Koons, he produces sculptures that affect the metamorphosis of practical objects into poetic, humorous apparitions, subverting the expectations of the viewer with his use of everyday building materials and industrial items as artistic tools.
