Keeping Up With Tracy Spadafora

 We will continue to update you about our new core members and established members work progress.  

I asked Tracy to share some of whats been going on with her in the studio recently.

My current focus in the studio is a continuation of my DNA and Evolve Series, which deal with the relationship of man and nature.

I haven’t had much time to work lately, having just moved my studio to  Framingham over the past couple months, but I am looking forward to exploring new formats and mixed media approaches to this work.

I often find inspiration in nature.  I take lots of photos of nature and collect organic materials when I go for walks.  I am also effected by stories/events pertaining to science and the environment.  Information and thoughts about these topics often work their way into my work.

     My process is both planned and experimental.   I often have some idea about the images I will use and how I will layer them in the work, but if the piece is not speaking to me, or if something interesting happens along the way, I am always open to change.   I really never know what a piece is going to look like until it is finished.
