About the Artist

Candice Bohannon is an American contemporary representational artist. 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.  After high
school, Bohannon enrolled in art college, 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 back 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 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.
