Paige Bradley knew she would be an artist by the age of nine. Immersed as she was in nature and art, Bradley developed an early fascination with the human figure.
She studied at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, learning sculpture and printing, after brief enrolments at Pepperdine University in her native California and Florence Academy of Art in Italy.
Her work is full of dichotomies—beautiful and ugly, liberated and contained, falling and floating. She endeavors to be always in control of the form but not imprisoned by its physicality. For her, the subject matter is most important.
Bradley believes that through the human figure artists speak a universal language that is timeless and essential. ‘I attempt to expand my sculptures beyond the human flesh of the figure and create the brilliance within us,’ she says.
Her work has been exhibited across the United States.
