Sage Paul

In Returning Home and Scare Crows, Sage Paul employs crescent, trigon and circle shapes — typical Coast Salish design features. The crows of Scare Crows are entwined in a “yin and yang” design, which suggests the concept of dualism and how contrary forces may be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world

Sage Paul is from the T'sartlip Nation and the daughter of artist Chris Paul and the sister to artists Liam Paul and C̸OSINIYE Paul. She works in a contemporary Coast Salish style. In 2014 she received the Youth Scholarship Award from the Vancouver Airport YVR Art Foundation where she learned the intricacies of glass work in her design of a sandblasted glass and cedar panel.
