[most_viewed]Though Paige Bradley has a few “trademark” sculptures, the Internet came and fell in love with one particular one that’s causing people from all over the world to see her art for the very first time. It’s an incredibly beautiful sculpture of a naked woman with light bleeding out of her cracked body.

How did this piece, called Expansion, come about? The sculptor just shared with Modern Metropolis her fascinating and inspiring story. ” 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’?”
