DIRECTORS STATEMENT

To discover an inner world within ourselves and our being is more than an observation for this artist. The subconscious and conscious mind is a driving force with Tracey on many levels. Her awareness/ desire for learning and hopefully discovery is a process within her art.

The revealing of what lies below is more than a fascination; maybe it’s an obsession. Physical body management is also a vital aspect for her as with the mind.
A spiritual person at heart has much to do with Tracey’s approach to art. The surface directs the viewer to one interpretation, however we know there is so much more beyond that plane. She seeks the spirituality of a place or landscape which transcends to her painting.

Colour or its subtle use is her intended approach. There is almost a reversal of its use and application. Consequently it is under played. There is strength of colour and tone but it is used spatially and texture is never too far away!

Discovery and the novelty thereof is as a result of a sanding back process Tracey has developed. We are often presented with gems within. Highlights of intense colour against a field of toned variation.

Tracey Smith is an artist who becomes immersed in her painting and the moment of development. The viewer and owners of her art receive a warmth almost a glow which is a feeling of emotion. This is Tracey at work with her art emitting an aura, mood and atmosphere.

Please follow this individual artist. She retains a spiritual light which we can all benefit from, a peace of mind is the culmination.

Yours in art,
