D.E. May is a finalist in the 2008 Contemporary Northwest Art Award, at the Portland Art Museum.
His work is in the permanent collections of the Albright-Knox Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, and in the private collections of established artists and prominent curators and collectors, including Blake Byrne and Werner Kramarsky.
This work reflects the abstract climate and restraint that I've tried to keep true in my work over time. A number of years ago a musician was in my workroom holding one of my constructions in his hand and commented, 'it looks like it has always been this way.' I carry that observation with me like a compass.
