The light radiates up the sculptures base to illuminate the body of this perfectly crafted woman on top of the plinth. Here’s Paige Bradley’s comments about her work:
From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: A social security number, a gender, a race, a profession or an I.Q. I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in, rather than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies? Would we still be able to exist if we were authentically ‘un-contained’?
What stunningly beautiful thought!
