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

" 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 1980s, I wandered into Keith Haring's Pop Shop and found that he was selling prints of his works at very low prices because he wanted to encourage art collecting by making it available to everyone. I always thought this was a really great idea as I even ended up purchasing one for myself. To celebrate this idea, I'm offering a small edition of 8 prints at a reduced price of just $100 each. The print being offered is Mar (Blue Light), 2014. This image comes from sketches made in Surry, Maine in the summer of 2013. Cadillac Mountain is in the distance. This is a linocut on paper. The image size is 6.5" x 11". The prints are being offered unframed and will be shipped via US Mail. Click here to buy.

This is a short video made in 2008 that talks about the creation of a series of small aluminum sculptures that are all cut from one piece of aluminum. This particular one is modeled after a 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.
This is 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.
