Candice Bohannon Biography
Candice Bohannon is a contemporary representational artist living in
the United States of America. She was born in Sacramento, CA in 1982.
Raised in the rural forested landscape of the foothills of the sierra
nevada mountains, her naturalistic aesthetic in art was honed from an early
age. She attended college in Laguna Beach, CA and after intense studies in
painting, drawing, sculpting, art history, philosophy and aesthetics, she
graduated from the Laguna College of Art and Design in 2005 with a BFA in
painting/drawing and a minor in sculpture. It was there at LCAD that
Candice met her future husband, fellow artist and best friend, Julio Reyes.
After nearly 10 years in southern California, they moved to rural northern
California where they currently reside.
Bohannon's artwork, an often-brooding combination of emotive figurative
pieces and intensely studied works from life and nature, has already
garnered the attention of many fine art connoisseurs, trade publications
and artists. Her body of work expresses to the viewer immense waves of
controlled power and emotional sensitivity as she looks out at the world
and attempts to share through art the touchingly sincere philosophical
search for truth and meaning in our human existence. The artist describes
much of her work's content as: the invisible yet perceptible quality of
awareness, emotions, experiences, memories and expectations, the ethereal
nature of the human soul and a searching for comfort and familiarity in the
sublime unknown. Here is a refreshing example of a contemporary figurative
artist who is not a cynical postmodern artist or a clinical academic
realist. Bohannon's soulful work is firmly planted the inexplicably complex
nature of human existence.
