Candace Primack
Portland, Oregon

As an abstract painter, Candace Primack is often torn between two worlds. She feels most fulfilled and balanced when combining the world of color, texture and movement with the monochromatic and contemplative. Despite filling a large canvas with no more than two or three colors, each painting has 7 to 14 layers of paint, creating build-up and history on the surface. She is currently working on paintings that encompass the colors of the winter skies in Oregon. Outside the studio, Candace likes to read fiction, take long walks, eat good food, work out, go to museums and be a mother to her teenage girls.

Comments About This Piece

This acrylic and charcoal work is part of a series entitled "Saturated Colors of Summer." When painting this piece, I was reminiscing on warm summer winds and late afternoon sun in the Midwest. It has been varnished with UVA varnish for sun protection. The painting has gallery wrapped edges that have been painted black. It arrives ready to hang.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
