My sister Candace Compton Pappas is having a show here in Santa Fe at the Shelby house from April 18 to May 2. I own several of her pieces and love having them in my home. Anyone that comes to my house admires them and always wants to know more about the artist and I’m so proud to tell them it’s my sister.
Candace’s paintings hold a powerful and often ethereal space for me. Her open and what I might call “infinite” space will embrace a solitary object – a bird, a house, a chair, a canoe, etc. The isolation of the object imbibes it with extra powers beyond the normal eye and felt more by my heart than anything else. The sensation takes me to a much bigger space that, while words may try to describe, is far beyond the verbal expression and enters into a deep primal place. I encourage you to make this show and if it’s not possible to attend in person, then follow the link below at the bottom of this post to her website where she goes into rich detail.

My work is drawn from a love of earth, dirt and sky, color and light, and any materials I can make stick.
