Art Center Manatee Candace Knapp: A Gathering Of Imaginary Friends

Wood sculptures and paintings by Candace Knapp

Through laminating and carving wood, I make sculptures that populate the ceiling, stand on the floor or hang on a wall and sometimes, rarely, recline on a pedestal. These are inhabitants of my imagination, made real. They are gentle creatures, for the most part, and I think of them as my imaginary friends. I have started painting too, and the paintings seem to be windows on the world where the sculptures originate. Over the last few years I have had several installations in museums. Each time there are some new characters and the way they are arranged enhances their meaning. They bounce off one another like characters in a play.
