One of the leading post-modernist artists in New Orleans, artist Stephen Paul Day lives and works in New Orleans. His recent work often mines fairy tales for themes such as truth and deception, beauty and beastliness, innocence and its loss. Day mines these themes for their symbolism as he explores the psychological, sexual, mythic, and moral subplots of folktales. His superbly crafted glass sculptures can be sharp and biting but other pieces can be both beautiful and whimsical.
