Stephen Paul Day
Formed glass, ceramic inclusions, painted
Stephen Paul Day began his serious work in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Superiere des Beaux Arts. His studies in lithography led to an illustrated version of Albert Camus' La Peste. An instilled wanderlust kept Day on the run.
As an artist-in-residence at New York’s Experimental Glass Workshop (now UrbanGlass), he produced the series Kryptonite Lies. He stayed in New York City for six years. Day has explored many populist forums, mainly dark pubs and music halls, and his work filters these moments.
In 1990 he met Sybille Peretti while teaching in Bavaria. In 2008, funded by a Joan Mitchell Grant, Day and Peretti collaborated on a Mobile Museum and Souvenir Shop for Prospect-1, in New Orleans; where they now live and work.
"Whimsical, psychological and slightly enigmatic, Day's new work elaborates his interest in the parallels between archeology, myth, children's stories and modern life." D. Eric Bookhardt
"Stephen Paul Day is the master of fake history exhibits. In past years, he has produced a selection of spurious opera memorabilia, nontraditional interpretations of fairy tales, unreal Tennessee Williams ephemera and a traveling exhibit of factually inaccurate New Orleans souvenirs (with his wife, artist Sibylle Peretti). Now he has invented a set of anachronistic artifacts from an imaginary antebellum community known as Cabin Land." Arthur Roger Gallery
