MARSHUN ART (CANDYCE "MARSH" JOHN)
Candyce “Marsh” John’s ever growing body of work is a self reflective expression of her views on existentialism. Representing the essence of what it is to live as a BIPOC and member of the LGBTQ+ community in a world of resistance, resilience and revolution during a new era of renaissance rooted in benevolence. Rising from the ashes of grief into a space of gratitude, Marsh’s oeuvre encapsulates an unapologetically blaque nuance of love, loss, and liberty by way of artistic expression.
