I Am Not Aaron T. Stephan

  • 2016
  • Art/Design/Literature
Aaron T Stephan is an artist living and working in Portland, Maine. He received a BFA from Purchase College in 1996 and an MFA from Maine College of Art in 2002. His work presents a wry look at the world around him, focusing on the complex web of information carried by everyday materials and objects. His work has taken form as a twenty-foot high set of table and chairs, a shelter made entirely of books, and a series of drawings reproducing iconic artworks ad infinitum. His work has been featured at venues across the US including DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Samson Projects, The Portland Museum of Art, John Michael Kohler Art Center, California Center for the Arts, Farnsworth Art Museum, Weitz Center at Carlton College, Institute of Contemporary Art at MECA, DUMBO Center for the Arts, Troy Arts Center, University of Maine Museum of Art, Quint Contemporary, and Albany Airport Gallery.
