Candy’s imagined scenes point to dramatic geographies but never declare a location. Her works announce themselves in effervescent surfaces and swathes of colorful brushstroke. Candy is represented by galleries in the USA and South Africa, where she is originally from. She lives and works in Jersey City.
I start with imagery from the natural world and let this take me on a journey.My work occupies the place that feels familiar: like a fleeting memory that is more emotionally connected than physically defined. The brushwork and mark – making are gestural and tethered to intuition and spontaneity rather than to an objective reality.
