Rick Delaney has been a practicing visual artist for over 25 years, the majority of those years incorporating computer-based technology in his artwork.
He has exhibited in solo and group shows, and worked collaboratively with artists, choreographers, and musicians throughout the United States. Some of his major collaborations in the late 90's were the Austin, Texas with multi-media group Circus of Fools. Delaney was also a founding member of gorilla-based performance and video group Army of Clowns.
Delaney describes his own thought of artwork as follows:
We are bombarded with sound and images that touch in our daily lives; I attempt to replicate that in my work. I investigate communication and interpersonal relationships. My investigations concern transferring nuances of social interactions and personal habits of my life. I am interested in transcending the mundane - examining the power of something considered banal and transforming its properties to a more dramatic structure. I translate the ordinary through repetition of concepts, by visual and aural means. My artwork is an extension of a need to understand and express my relationships with people and my environment. This investigation includes verbal communication, dreams, texts, sonic art, body movement, and materials.
