About the Artist: Candace Compton Pappas

Ms Pappas works at home in Michigan. In a studio with beautiful views of the woods and changing light. Her work is influenced by this landscape as well as the quiet space that surrounds her. Painting what is close to her; the teaming life, beautiful decay and continual transformation she observes while walking in the woods. Her imagery include chairs, birds, alters and vessels - often representing a centered space, singular and settled. Birds demonstrate flight and return, character and persistence. Figures enter, sit and leave spaces. Spheres, circles - all suggest time and timelessness.  

Ms Pappas likes to work with earthy, textured materials – cement – solid and disintegrating, soil, sand, wax; creating grounds that question permanence and hold on to light.

The search for home, both literally and in her surroundings, and metaphorically within herself, has been a constant and underlying theme in her work.
