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.

I see beauty

From the river

I see the scars of the mountain

Testimony of a long

And hard life.

 

From the mountain

I see the long and curved body of the river

Indicating perseverance

Even in difficult terrains.

 

I see scars

I see a long and curve body

I see beauty

In nature.

Roses

I like them so much 

All roses are beautiful

Even with sharp thorns.

Typewriter Artist

Typewriter Artist as seen on the Daily Megabyte

Paul Smith was born in the 1920s with cerebral palsy, a serious condition that affects the brain. It limited his ability to speak and move. Back then, people with the condition didn’t have much of a life expectancy, and as a result, he was illiterate. When he turned 16, he learned to speak, and at 32 he learned to walk. But there’s one thing very particular about this man. At the age of 11 he started to create paintings using 10 symbols of an old typewriter. You will be amazed at what you are about to see in this video.

RUBBERS: Martha Friedman at the DeCordova Sculpture Park & Museum

September 18, 2010—January 9, 2011

In her sculptures Brooklyn-based artist Martha Friedman depicts tricks and balancing acts, while arguing for the possible sexual connotation in everything. Referencing the history of art, from high modernist abstraction to minimalism to the Duchampian ready-made, Friedman is interested in locating the point at which common objects slip into abstraction and, even more so, eroticism. As a result, food, which is so deeply connected to the body, emerges as one of her subjects, as do quotidian objects like rubber bands and eggs in conglomerations that are beautiful, witty, and often set up visual and verbal double-entendres.

For her first solo museum exhibition in the Northeast, Friedman presents RUBBERS, a collection of cast rubber sculptures that explore the nature of sculptural and bodily materiality through food items and rubber’s most ubiquitous form: the rubber band. Implicating the human body through substance, subject matter, and scale, Friedman’s work presents the material of sculpture through the material condition of the body. In doing so, she exposes the underlying connection between objects, bodies, and their histories.

Notes from the Artist:
I am an artist and visual explorer who uses paint, clay, stone, wire, wood, paper, and pixels to create and discover new visual worlds. My work has evolved from recording the beauty and variety of the external world to creating my own imaginary worlds, as evidenced in my paintings, sculptures and digital works. My work embodies the stylistic undercurrents of Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, and a dash of Dada; as well as reflecting my Northern European roots and the influences of a formal graduate education in art history and philosophy.

My work has been displayed or published by a variety of organizations including: the Saatchi Gallery Online, the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, the BBC Collective Gallery; Downtown LA Life Magazine International; Boletin del Instituto Andaluz del Patrimonio Historico (PH 60) in Seville, Spain; Qind Magazine (London, England), Green Hills Literary Lantern, Detroit Free Press, File Magazine, Flak Photo, the permanent collection of the Meteor Photo Gallery, and the Agitatto Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland, My work is also in private collections in Europe and the U.S. I have shown my work in a one-man show and in numerous group shows in the US. Since 1995 when I created my website, my work has been viewed by more than 3 million people worldwide and over 2 million people on Flickr..

I am a self-taught artist who has been honing his artistic skills and aesthetic sense for over 35 years. I have worked as a professional photographer, off and on, for the past 18 years, undertaking assignments as diverse as architectural photography, executive portraits, special events and product packaging. I also have taught art history, philosophy and logic at various colleges and universities in Michigan and was chairman of the Humanities department at Duns Scotus College in the 1970s. I have two Masters degrees, one in Humanities and the other in Philosophy from Wayne State University.

I was born in a displaced persons (DP) camp in Augsburg, Germany of Estonian parents, and I immigrated to the United States in 1950. I grew up in Detroit and currently live in Plymouth, Michigan with my wife.
