Candice Dawn Blignaut

Born in Johannesburg, Candice now lives and works in Cape Town.   For an artist whose work is concerned largely with the pursuit of definition, Candice sits uncomfortably with easy classifications.

Reluctant to ascribe unambiguous qualities to her work, she considers it driven as much by passion and intuition as by insight and skill.  Strikingly graphic, her canvases dark yet playful, intricate and unfussy, highly personal as well as satirical.
