Boy on Books
22 x 19 x 11 in
Boy on Books was created when Stephen Paul Day was at a residency at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin and was included in his show at the Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans. Whimsical, psychological and slightly enigmatic, Day's work elaborates his interest in the parallels between archeology, myth, children's stories and modern life. Billed as assorted artifacts from a lost civilization buried in the silt of the Mississippi delta, these pieces soon reveal themselves to be the products of a fertile personal mythology.
