“Obliteration Scrolls emerged initially as a response to unlimited access to material and indulging in a working preference of drawing in intimate settings, and morphed into an interest in the fickle nature of language and story.

How ‘obliteration’ might present visually became a recurring thought and has since guided the work, operating from the framework of: “is it everything? Or… nothing?”

Tracy’s work was featured in ‘All Together Now,’ on view February 11-26, 2023.

“Mixed media works emerge in series as explorations of charcoal, acrylic and oil on paper and canvas. Imagery remains vaguely subterranean and emerges from a process that is as reliant upon drawn media as upon painted. Earthen references are reiterated within tonal palette. There are glimpses of what lies within, though entry is barred. Billowing shapes hold viewer aloft and safely at a distance as access points emerge in one instance to then break apart in another. Structures appear briefly only to dissipate and dissolve. These works seek to make sense of a world just outside of reach, beckoning yet elusive.”
