Delgado maintains that his paintings do not emanate from a singular cause or have a specific catalyst. Although he is often asked about the ideas behind his work, he insists that he doesn’t start his creative process out of a thought, concern, or intellectual design of any kind. Reality is shocking enough, according to Delgado, and the very act of experiencing what already exists is both the fuel and engine of his particular approach to painting. He does not prefer any one experience over another. In fact, he makes a strong effort not to qualify or define his encounters and values them most for the gift of awareness.
