“Southern history is like a black tide, thick as mud, washing over its inhabitants. The residue remains present in the land as well as in the psychology of every individual. Being a native of the South, I have recognized this residue in myself, my family, and culture. It is through these relationships that I understand the current of the past as a present and recognizable force in every place and individual. In my work, I try to provide form and conscious experience to this invisible current.”
Candice Ivy earned her BFA from Coker College and her MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where she was honored with the Bartlett Award. She has exhibited her work internationally. A multi-media installation artist, Ivy's work focuses on themes of cultural and personal history through exploring the relationship between family, the community, and landscape.
