... 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."

Back in the late 1980's, I wandered into Keith Haring's Pop Shop and found that he was selling prints of his works at a very low price because he wanted to encourage both young people as well as people with limited funds to start collecting artwork. I always thought this was a really great idea as I even ended up purchasing one for myself. So to somewhat celebrate this idea, I'm offering a limited number of small edition prints at a reduced price (starting at just $100). The first print being offered is Mar (Blue Light), 2014. This image comes from sketches made in Surry, Maine in the summer of 2013. The mountain in the distance is Cadillac Mountain. This is a linocut on paper. The image size is 6.5" x 11". There are 8 prints in the edition*. As this is a reductive print, there will be no additional editions made. The prints are being offered unframed and will be shipped via UPS Mail.

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.
artist-led tours of the
Philadelphia Museum of Art
Ever wonder what it would be like to take a tour in a museum with an artist? I know that most people really love it because when I bring friends to the museum and start talking about the work, people tend to crowd around me to hear what I've got to say. I've teamed up with a new company called sidetours.com who promote and book my artist-led tours at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I'll take you on a tour that highlights some of the most interesting artworks in the collection and will explain to you why they are important and what they really mean. Each tour will be slightly different depending on the experiences of the group (you don't need a background in the arts, just curiosity).
