Click to preview The Sculpture of Peter W. Michel photo book

This 80 page book contains 97 color photos of 60 of Peter W. Michel's colorful, whimsical sculptures done over a span of 31 years. From the artist's statement:
"My work represents a stand for the possibility that art is, for the expression of joy, aliveness, love and relationship. Through color, humor, the play of ideas, the effects of light and space, the viewer is invited to access his own spirit of playfulness and relatedness."
