Candice Smith CORBY's Work

For years I have admired the domestically-focused, self-referential work of Boston-based artist Candice Smith Corby.

Working with almost exclusively in water-based media (gouache, acrylic, watercolor), each piece incorporates furniture or interiors objects stacked on top of the artist, or stacked and near her self-portrait.  And since her art is executed mainly on paper, fabric or wall (and almost entire unframed), it gives the viewer close access to her intimate world.

I appreciate her ability to whimsically document her domestic frustration.
