"Dale allows the material to serve as his voice...the quality of the color or grain may suggest a literal as well as a symbolic reference." "...The objects are transmitting to their viewer the artist's own sense of outlandish fun. In other words, a chair can be more than a thing to sit on, or it may be just that. Dale Lewis has discovered, apparently, quite intuitively something that many artists never learn; that one of art's chief virtues is its metaphorical versatility as it serves as a vehicle for ideas, feeling and opinions common to human experience."
