Marcel Harrison Lives and works in Daleville, Alabama USA Multidisciplinary artist and poet Marcel Harrison's work accomplishes an insightful exploration of the connection between body, music and words to walk the viewers through a multilayered experience, inducing them to elaborate personal associations and intepretations. His style rejects any conventional classifications and is marked with freedom as well as coherence, while encapsulating a careful attention to composition and balance. One of the most impressive aspects of Harrison's work is the way it accomplishes the difficult task of provoking thought and reflection: we are very pleased to introduce our readers to his stimulating and multifaceted artistic production.

I can now combine my poetry/lyrics, movement, music, and visual presentation into fixed form with a vision that is “all me”.
