Imaginary Botanicals III

Piece description from the artist

These Imaginary Botanicals came about right after 9/11. The artist was working with the specimen collections at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia and what sprang out were bright and colorful type specimens that sprang from the artists imagination. The bright and cheerful palette was a reaction to the horrible events of that day and which helped the healing process to begin.

About Craig Stover

Philadelphia, PA

After graduating from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1993, Craig Stover began his artistic career as a studio assistant for the internationally renown artist Sam Maitin. He also began showing his works in a variety of galleries both locally and nationally. Aside from his studio practices, he also worked for a number of arts organizations which ultimately led him to be the Executive Director of Allens Lane Art Center. This was highlighted by a cover story in Art Matters (Mar. 2008) about him being a fine artist who ran his own arts organization. Mr. Stover continued to exhibit his works in a number of solo exhibitions while running the center which culminated in a solo print exhibition at the Williams Gallery. At the beginning of the pandemic, he began his most successful series of works titled Sentinels which were large abstracted warrior figures that became his signature style.
