The Forest of Darkness: The Art of Candice Tripp

blue and black drawing with skeletons by candice tripp

Candice Tripp titles her art pieces like she was writing a screenplay: 1) “They said to wait here and they’d be right back.” 2) “And when she paused to listen, the footsteps stopped.” These are the titles of two paintings of innocent damsels lost in grim forests. Her other folkloric illustrations in black-and-blue tones are equally sinister with skeletons and animals.
