A sophisticated, dreamlike view of two distant landscapes, framed and bordered in abstraction. Candice says she developed a unique acrylic/encaustic technique for this work, as seen in the white area. The red area also represents experimentation with acrylic paint. The surfaces are irregular and a bit glossy on the white area. "This painting is named "Lessons" because sometimes when an obstacle appears looming in the background, it helps to change one's perspective," says Candice.

Tempe, Arizona

As an American exploring issues of identity, artist Candice Eisenfeld paints through the lens of the first American art movement, the Hudson River School. Rather than depicting a specific locale, Candice’s artwork evokes a sense of place. These "inner landscapes" are invented, and often reference photographs taken during travels in southern Appalachia and the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains. Whether real or imagined, her paintings are influenced by the Dutch Masters, Tonalists, and Chinese painting. Produced on a single wooden panel, the ethereal landscapes are often joined with segments of aqueous color fields which act as commentary for the landscapes, like the chorus in a Greek play. The crisp, hard edges separating the landscapes from the color fields command a sense of order in an otherwise fluid and painterly surface. With two or three sections of the panel competing for attention, the painting creates multiple focal points. Candice's art has been displayed in embassies in Namibia and Belarus, held in the collections of Norwest Bank and Northwest Airlines, and published in American Art Collector, Phoenix Home and Garden, and Southwest Art magazines. When she's not painting, Candice enjoys stand up comedy, volunteering, sewing and is a self-described "news junkie."
