Edmund Barry Gaither notes: " As a jazzman might continuously riff on a standard tune each time changing its emotional impact, Delsarte has used light and color to reconfigure the composition, each time giving it fresh nuances that shift in mood and emotion."

Meet The Artist: muralist, painter, and printmaker Louis Delsarte
"His love of improvisation with color and light allies strongly with African musical traditions that has strongly impacted all areas of the arts in which black Americans have engaged. It is in this sense that 'The Light' recalls jazz, for as musical tones capture and toy with our passions, so do color and light evoke moods that shift our understanding and appreciation of images before us. In the spirit of embracing experimentation and improvisation, Delsarte sweeps us along with his series 'The Light'." — Edmund Barry Gaither
