Candice Gima is a Hawaii-based artist, born and raised on the island of O‘ahu. In 2016, Candice received her Bachelor's of Fine Arts from the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa with a concentration in Painting. She has previously been recipient of both the Yoko Radke and Helen Gilbert-Bushnell Memorial awards and is also a participating member of the Association of Hawai‘i Artists.
Throughout her work, Candice explores the subtle poetics of everyday living, often using figuration to create connection and intimacy within a space. Feelings of nostalgia and domesticity in Candice's works are meant to build a home base from which the viewer can safely address thoughts on place, personhood, and one's own impact on the world around them.
