Internationally acclaimed sculptor Paige Bradley unveiled a life-sized bronze that encourages viewers to find a piece of themselves within it.
 
Expressiveness of touch and well-balanced figures characterize the magnetic sculptures of Paige Bradley. On July 24, Bradley exposed to the world via Greenberg Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the first life-sized edition of the bronze “Release.” The sculpture displays a beautifully and accurately modeled nude female figure. The pose, which conveys freedom, fullness, and, indeed, release, is one anyone could identify. The legs, right placed in front of the left, are solid and strong, supporting the fully arched back and outstretched arms and hands of the figure. Her face is one of calm serenity, contentment, and satisfaction.

Greenberg Fine Art will feature “Release” along with many current works by Bradley from July 24 through August 7. Commenting on the exhibition, Bradley suggested, “I want people to feel that the work is beautiful, complex, and visionary, but what really excites me is when there is a profound understanding between the viewer and the art and they take the image home with them in their heart and in their mind.”
