 Artist Bio.

Born in Johannesburg, Candice lives and works in Cape Town with her husband and son.

– Geoffrey Lehmann (‘The Animals’, The New Yorker June 01, 2009)

" For an artist whose work is concerned largely with the pursuit of definition, Candice sits
uncomfortably with easy classifications. Reluctant to ascribe unambiguous qualities to her work, she
considers it driven as much by passion and intuition as by insight and skill. Strikingly graphic, her
canvases are dark yet playful, intricate and unfussy, highly personal as well as satirical.

Animals occur frequently in Candice’s work, much more so than human figures. They serve, however,
as symbols of humans’ inner worlds. Animals, lacking egos, are the perfect carriers of projected
meaning.

These animals are dark, unlovely creatures: crows, hyenas, mangy dogs – symbolic of vice rather than
virtue. For Candice, though, they are creatures that are misunderstood.

To use them is to attempt todefine the darker aspects of our selves. As she explains: “Each of us battles inside every day with some small thing…Like a dog, sometimes we find it difficult to let go of the battle. We all have our own dark, secret heart, the place we find solace, license, disguise and will.”
