Poet, former bookstore owner and part-time vagabond, Michael Deyermond makes drawings and rough-hewn wooden sculptures inscribed with bare bones aphorisms that expose a brittle, yet persevering soul.

He wrote, one year ago i left society and went to a cattle ranch in the middle of nowhere - to the land of the apaches and billy the kid of freedom and lawlessness of promised beginnings and public execution.

I didn't go there to find anything. i went to lose it all. to destroy myself and in doing so find out what is in my heart what is in my mind what is in my voice and only then try to imagine how i could possibly give that to another person, to a society to you.
