About the artwork
Candice’s main object chains stand boldly in her work. They are positioned symbolically, forming peaceful balance or tension in composition with the Sevendots logo. The surface of chains transparently reflects the view in one’s eye, the essence of being that embodies impressions and emotions. The artist explores these bold and colorful patterns of reflections to visually spell out the complexity of human relations and Sevendots logos flow among each other like personal histories and life encounters, generating new association from past and future.
About the artist
Candice S. Joo earned a BFA from Parsons School of Design in New York City in 2006 with a focus in architectural design. Joo started her corporate career at an architectural firm in New York City upon graduation and transitioned in 2008 to the architectural, engineering and construction industry in Seoul, South Korea. However, the rich and successful career in the corporate world was unable to fulfill Joo’s need for creative freedom.
Joo in response spent much of her spare time painting and ultimately left her corporate career in 2015 to become a full-time painter.Chains are the main subject to her painting and explores the bold an colorful patterns of reflections on the surface to visually spell out the complexity of human relations.
