space Arless Day builds the best of all possible worlds, in his bright collage paintings of architecture, landscapes and interiors. He literally constructs environments from scores of images collected, cut and torn from magazines, books and catalogues to produce a Technicolordreamworld of joy, delight and whimsy.

Looking through the window frames in many of Day’s constructions, the viewer encounters a series of points of view with created a panoramic passage from close-ups to distant views, from expansive interiors to syncopated vistas and back again. Day reorders our expectations with gentle humor which beckons discovery in the interrupted architectural forms or in juxtapositions of disparately scaled objects.

Day applies torn and cut pieces to a board with wax and burnishes it down securely. He creates the ficticious image then adds gouache by brush and uses a screwdriver, which as he explains it, represents “my drawing part” of the work. This tradition of the craftsmanship and architectural form links him to his family, his father at woodcarver, his older brother and his wife, both designers.
