Candice Tripp (interviewed) recently dropped off some mini-paintings off at Black Rat Projects in London, with which she also recently collaborated with to release a print. She now tells AM that these first 20 paintings from the series collectively entitled The Tribe first formed in her mind as she was preparing for her Joshua Liner Gallery in 2009 (covered). For the show, she set a basic rule for herself that she had to cover each child’s face that she painted with a mask which got her thinking that it would be nice to paint them in a line-up as sort of a catalog of characters. Now, almost a year and a half later, she finally has had time to tackle the project and plans to continue adding to it.
