About the Art
What the artist saysI use the shapes, patterns and symbols in my everyday life to bring energy to my art. My work often starts with no blueprint, insisting I surrender to my thoughts and materials.
Why we like itTracey’s pattern repetition is reminiscent of a nostalgic wallpaper.
Where we hang itThe wallpaper-like imagery of Tracey’s work will soften any wall.
