Current Research & Exhibition

Sculptor in Residence, American University
Mr. Page's work deals largely with perceived threat as opposed to probable danger, our need for safety, notions of punishment in pursuit of security and the hidden or ignored brutality that underpins everyday life.

He recently showed his solo show, “Ornamental Cookery”, at the Katzen Art Center at American University.
