About the Artist:
Educated in the Crawford College of Art and Design Tracy achieved an Honours Degree in Fine Art painting, Higher Diploma and Masters in Art and Design Education, and was awarded ‘The Marshall Hudson Award’ for excellence in education in 2008. Tracy currently teachers in Youthreach Knocknaheeny, Foroige Corcaí and the College of Commerce in Cork city. Tracy has exhibited throughout Ireland and her work encompasses painting, installation and mixed media work.
Tracy is interested in the interplay between dream and reality – the traverse of imagination and reception, the unconscious and the conscious, the internal and external reality. Her work questions the surety of perception, both through its combination of appropriation and painterly technique as well as its playing with notions of memory and observation. Her pictorial narratives investigate the barriers between illusion and reality and the vulnerability that lingers therein.
