Need a break while at the hospital? Check out homes and vessels artwork at Taubman Center

Although Candace Compton Pappas is recognized primarily as a painter, this series of constructed homes and vessels represents an important facet of her life as an artist.

Over the years, she has collected, saved, garbage-rescued and gathered objects that capture her attention. A firm believer that there is no such thing as garbage, and a great observer of nature’s cycle of creating and breaking down, she has constructed numerous cement vessels to hold all these objects that proliferate the studio.

These finds, the vessels that hold them, and the totems that pay tribute to them, all keep her company, inspire her and keep her calm in her temple-like studio in the woods outside of Chelsea, Michigan.
