Candice Bohannon

Biography

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.

Bohannon 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 in the inexplicably complex nature of human existence.

Artist Statement

“My paintings are labors of love, full of heart and intensity.  I endeavor to create works of substance and beauty, share tenderness and generosity towards my fellow man, and leave something behind that will serve others. I strive to create objects of human value: serving to enrich this world, to connect the lonely, to console and revivify our wounded hearts and somnolent minds. I love to explore the rich connection between strangers, the long unbroken line of human endeavors and ideals, and the heroic heart within.  I am fascinated with symbols of great significance in seemingly mundane environments, 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.

It is my belief that art can help us to refocus our attentions on our most important beliefs, expand the scope of our compassion and understanding, and connect us with those who have walked a different path, in a different place.  I strive to capture a glimpse of the beauty, awe and wonder of this world before I leave it, and to share that with others.”
