As an accomplished artist and winner of several prestigious awards, TRACY accustomed us to her rather ethereal yet very present art of landscape painting. She is now becoming autonomous with regards to figurative work, demonstrating a fierce desire for independence vis-à-vis the reality of the tangible world, which she today seeks to exalt.
On the strength of her ample experience of skilfully handling the brush and knife, and of combining beautiful colour blends, Tracy now draws us into her innovative abstract world, harmoniously marrying together the great accomplishments of Abstraction, this movement which has largely dominated Contemporary Art since the beginning of the 20th century and is also the “purpose that differs from the purely formal imitation of nature” described by Hegel in his work Aesthetics.
TRACY’s unique form of abstract art is a dream world, an uncluttered world, and a well constructed world made of finely balanced geometric or tumultuous compositions. It’s a world that sometimes evokes the sublime art of stained glass, as the light emanating from it seems to burst forth from deep inside the piece. It’s a universe that escapes figurative illusionism to give way to a vision of an ideal inner world; a sort of ultimate achievement for the artist. This world of Tracy’s can only astonish and appeal to us.
