Craig Stover Studio
Art Museum Area
Philadelphia, PA.
USA

 



" ... brightly colored work, possesses a lovely looseness and lyricism, its graceful forms reminiscent of the ephemeral fantasy forms and chance effects of surrealism. "

New Haven Register, 2005

" Stover's studio reveals his love of art, his love of art history and his love of the materials art is made from. "

Star Publications, 2002

" While encompassing lessons learned from Art History, Stover pictorially chronicles his life’s journey - a voyage often alluding to domesticity, home and navigating the waters of parenthood."

AM Weaver, 2013

"From one picture to the next, I'm telling a big story. Part autobiography, part discovery, it's really my life within these pictures. I string along each idea from image to image like a conversation. A lifelong conversation with myself that I get to share with others."

    videos

A short video made in 2008 that talks about the creation of a series of small aluminum sculptures. These sculptures are all cut from one piece of aluminum, that are sometimes painted with enamels, and are then bent into shape. This particular one is modeled after a large life sized Joan of Arc statue that resides next to the Philadelphia Museum of Art on 25th street (original pictured left). There are more examples of these sculptures in the pictures section of this site.

Another short video that is a time lapse of the making of one of the small aluminum sculptures. This one is titled "Old Scratch" and was made in February, 2014.
