Threaded - A Journey Through Paper and Porcelain
Opening Night Friday September 22nd 6-8pm
Threaded showcases the work of Tracy Dickason, an emerging artist based in Northern Sydney. Her artistic practice is a combination of porcelain ceramics and mixed media contemporary illustration and painting on paper and canvas.
Tracy has shown art in galleries and exhibitions in Brisbane, Sydney and Victoria. Her professional artistic journey started with hands elbow deep in clay, finding the sensory experience of working with clay both therapeutic and liberating. Over time this lead to exploring the same sense on paper and canvas incorporating different textures and materials to take the viewer on both a visual and sensory journey.
Tracy has a passion for getting art to tell stories, sometimes these stories are predefined or directed by the title of the works on display and sometimes the viewer goes beyond the structure and journeys through their own story by simply observing and experiencing the emotion they encounter.
When Tracy makes art she doesn’t have a plan, in her words: “it is the one part of my life that has not been wholly thought out and as a result leaves me vulnerable and exposed. Through this raw communication my hope is to connect with the world in an honest and authentic way.”
Threaded - a Journey through Paper and Porcelain is a culmination of her lived experience through change and then challenges and triumphs it has brought.
