Acerca de


Albert Depas, the speaker, editor, painter, and encourager of the arts, here metamorphoses his voice from talker to singer as his diction transforms from commonplace expression to the highly charged forms of poetic speech. One of the many pleasures of this book, Mr. Depas' first, is the way his poetry records shifting perspective, from joy to the expression of loss or doubt from the dogged optimism of the title poem to those less certain poems which engage us in darker moods. In one poem he speaks of 'the nagging / of achievement'; the quest throughout these poems -- for identity, love or simply well-being -- is the achievement. From the foreword by Barry Wallenstein (poet) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 'Metamorphosis of Joy' is a collection of poetry that should be read by anyone with a desire to love without envy, forgive without regret and a great devotion to live in harmony with everyone.

About the Author:

A New York-based multimedia artist, Albert Depas's broad creative repertoire includes works in oil paint, pastel, sculptural assemblages with found objects, photography, collages, and poetry. His art works have been exhibited mainly in the United States, Haiti and canada. He has published a periodical, Show & Tel, for artists and poets that subsequently become a magazine, Creative Insight, His art works and poetry are published in several publications and in Doubly Gifted, an anthology of six artists and poets.He is the author of Metamorphosis of Joy, his first volume of poetry. For the past seven years, Mr. Depas has been creating collages inspired by world events, and notably the result of the 2000 presidential election between George Bush and Al Gore. In observing the controversy over who won the presidential election due the counting or miscounting in Tallahassee, Florida, he realized this was a historical event and should be documented. These collages are done with print images from the news media. They are observations and commentaries on the human condition. In 2006, Mr. Depas worked to put together a collection of black-and-white photographs taken at St. Nicholas Park, in the heart of Harlem, New York. The ensuing project, entitled 'Finding My Path', connotes a journey through the depiction of the staircases and pathways in the park that reflects his own personal search for direction in life. Mr. Depas believes that an art work should do at least one of the following: Entertain the Senses, Educate the Mind, or Enlighten the Spirit.
