"We find the Works of Nature still more pleasant, the more they resemble those of art." -Joseph Addison
Miss Day is a Sculptor, practiced in a variety of materials, recently specializing in the use of “flesh” as a medium. Interested in taking her practice abroad she is also exploring what it means to be Canadian and integrating it into her work.
Taxidermy, mythology and theories of the natural world are a key interest in her research as a practising artist while exploring the relationships developed between the work, the artist, the space and the viewer.
"When encountering the works of Jean Day... consider how [the artist has] so competently managed to oscillate between the realms of figuration and abstraction. In callenging reality as we think we know it, or percieve it, Day... exhibit[s] extraordinary abilities in conceptual uance and fine craft, resulting in potential emotive experiences for both formally educated and casual audiences, alike."
