About

BALANCE. Heroic, By Paige Bradley. Bronze. Signed and numbered. From an edition of 8. 84” H x 61” x 43”. Please allow 8-12 weeks for casting. Born in 1974 in Carmel, California PAIGE BRADLEY knew she would be an artist by the age of nine. Immersed in nature and art, Bradley's fascination with the human figure began early. She believed that through the figure an artist could speak a universal language that is timeless and essential. Paige Bradley started drawing from the nude model by the age of ten and by fifteen was studying intensely at university campuses during the summer months. Knowing that she was naturally a sculptor, at seventeen she cast her first bronze sculpture. Educated at Pepperdine University, Paige spent a year in Florence, Italy with the university’s study program. There she took classes at the Florence Academy of Art, which included art history. Upon returning to the U.S. in 1994, Bradley left Pepperdine and entered into what would be a ten year apprenticeship with renowned sculptor Richard MacDonald. She went on to continue her education at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied sculpture and learned to paint and print in several different mediums. Her work remains in the Pennsylvania Museum of Fine Arts. In 1995 she was assistant sculptor on a monument for the Atlanta Olympic Games. In 2001 she was voted into the National Sculpture Society, the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and The Salmagundi Club as a professional sculptor. In 2006 one of her sculptures was selected to become a prestigious international award for young dancers. A replica of the sculpture is now awarded to a talented dancer selected by a panel of judges annually from Ballet International. Annually, Paige Bradley has several solo exhibitions, and her work can be seen in selected galleries throughout the world. In 2004 she moved her studio from California to New York City. In the spring of 2007, she moved to London, where she worked until 2016. Paige now resides and works full time again in the United States. Her work is housed in prominent public and private collections across the globe, among them, actress Nicole Kidman, radio personality Robin Quivers, architect and designer Campion Platt and music producer Harvey Goldsmith. Paige’s work is full of dichotomies: both the beautiful and the ugly, the liberated and the contained, the falling and the floating. She is always in control of form but not imprisoned by its literality. The subject matter becomes the most important -- not narrowly feminist, but rather humanistic betrayals of modern emotion. Paige’s work is becoming a valuable keystone for the missing figure in contemporary art. Entering the middle of her career, Paige Bradley’s talent and artistic achievements have already gained her much notoriety.
