About the Artist

The Artist - Frontier StatesCandace Gaudiani was born in Boston and grew up in Wisconsin and Maine. She holds a B.A., cum laude, in English Literature, and an MBA from Harvard University. Gaudiani studied fine art and portraiture at University of California, Berkeley, and print-making with the print maker for the late Eugene Smith. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay area.

Gaudiani’s narrative work with people explores what lies beneath the public face. More recently, she has pictured America through train windows, considering - What is 'home'? How do our memories and the speed at which we move through life shape us? From what do we derive our identity? Can we ever see clearly where we have been and what we have become? Can we ever understand ‘place’ or ‘each other’?

Her works are held in numerous collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; George Eastman House; The Prentice and Paul Collection/Sack Photographic Trust; Art Museum of the Americas, Organization of American States; the Fidelity Investments Corporate Art Collection; The Harry Ransom Center for the Humanities, Austin, Texas; Ryerson University, Toronto; and private collections. Her work is exhibited widely in the United States and Europe.
