He has exhibited at Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and has taken part in numerous residencies including the Instituto Inclusartiz residency program in Rio de Janeiro and the Container Artist Residency 01. His work is in the collection of Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro.

 

Page's illusionistic works emerge from an investigation into painting’s claims to truth, notably the antagonism between those claims made of behalf of the perspectival depth of the high Renaissance and the anti-illusionistic flatness of high Modernism. Page’s work, both deep and flat, with one eye towards the Renaissance and the other towards Modernism, asks questions about painting’s claims to truth in our digital, ‘post-truth’ era.
