My guest today is a brilliant sculptor, a thoughtful human being, and a great conversationalist named Carlos Page. Carlos was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He’s traveled extensively and lived on both the east and west coast. After an apprenticeship in San Francisco, Carlos moved to New York City and completed a special honors program at Hunter College. He then ran his own studio in New Jersey for 14 years before resettling in Arizona. Carlos creates functional and abstract sculptures made with steel, concrete and wood. His work reflects on the balance between the raw power of nature and the sophistication of the human experience. It was fun to hear his perspective on art, life, and magic. I had a lot of fun speaking with Carlos. I hope you enjoy it as well.
In our conversation, we discussed doing what allows us to be, confidence, loving art, creating art is doing the work, being your own limit, flow, hard days, discipline without a boss, knowing you’re the only one to make it happen, including the bad days in the picture, sculptures, wood, steel, life and money, investing in yourself, our responsibility in the studio, creativity and discipline, games becoming jobs, art as a job, being alive and doing something, the thing inside of you, stories and games to play, wanting to create something, work, young people, successful people, humans are still here, energy, stories in our heads, peace living with uncertainty, magic, priests and shamans, and the best gifts we can offer the world.
