Candyce Brokaw

“Gazing at the paintings and drawings of Candyce Brokaw, one is immediately struck by a generous surface and graphic complexity. On closer examination, her images reveal a unique wonderland populated with figures – flowing and merging – into and out from one another. When she is at work, time stands still. In her unbridled passion to create, she allows her insides to spill out onto the page, as an endless flow of visual incantation. Her oeuvre is in any case beguiling, as chimeric elements dance across the surface of her chosen substrate. Resembling strange, primitive motifs, her creatures seem to reflect the wellspring of fragments from the artist’s own personality.”

The art is the spontaneous compulsion of her core. The creations are streams of her unconsciousness.

The art becomes a Rorschach test. Viewing the embedded components gives a glimpse of the treasures hidden within the deep chambers of themselves.
