JP Art Consultancy | Tracy Burgess
Tracy Burgess’s approach to painting is spontaneous, sensual and intuitive. Her paintings are not preconceived, she allows each one to emerge out of a state of ‘letting go’ giving space for a freedom of expression to take place at each moment of connection with the canvas.
Often painted to music and applying paint directly with her hands, she enjoys not knowing the outcome. The unexpected excites her, feeling and being present to interact with the possibilities of what might arrive during the creative act. Expressed therefore is a fluid, childlike playfulness and hunger to explore, embodying an often deeply emotional dynamic as very real parts of her humanness become present and free.
There is an energetic dance which takes place as the paintings become alive with movement, gesture, emotion and colour. Each painting becoming a layering of moments, some fused, blurred or eclipsed, others remaining more solid, physically tactile and present. Within the layers there is a continual synergy and dynamic, as with life, different colours and marks start to sing at different moments.
Her approach is directly linked with her interest in Eastern philosophies and movement practices, predominantly spontaneous Qigong and Breathwork, which is integral to her creative process.
