Arless Day

Arless Day’s collage paintings of interiors and exteriors often appear realistic at first glance but are actually dream environments created from scores of images collected from publications and assembled into a surreal and invented world. Arless was born in Baton Rouge and studied at the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota. He applies torn and cut pieces to a board with wax and burnishes it down securely. Arless creates the fictitious places then adds gouache by brush and uses various tools to draw into the work. His collages end up being windows into an imagined world that are not architecturally possible but full of beauty and surprise.
