Paige Stewart (b. 1985 Des Moines, IA) is a modern sculpture artist. Her abstract sculptures include openings or portals, facial & figural studies, totemic works, and ceramic murals.
Paige thanks her family for their encouragement in expressing herself in art. In her youth she enjoyed the sculptural work of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Andy Goldsworth available at The Des Moines Art Center.
She graduated from Western State College in Gunnison, CO with a BA in Biopsychology and Clinical Psychology and went on to pursue an MA in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica. While in attendance she recommitted to her soul’s purpose, that of creating ceramic sculptures. Thus in 2012 began her self education in ceramics with the launch of her pottery line Soil + Toil. Five years later, in 2017, she transitioned to making sculptural work.
Her art is an outgrowth of her spiritual journey. Each piece seeks a balanced relationship between the varying dualities we, as humans, face. She is fascinated by how we split our very selves into polarities and thus our view of the world around us. One current theme specifically in her body of work is balancing the feminine and the masculine. Another thematic is the idea of the LEGACY, we are each born into and that which we leave behind, individually, communally, and universally. And the question that comes while sleeping or waking; What kind of Legacy are we leaving behind in each moment?
