How’s this for a great example of why I blog. The very talented Tracy Potts introduced herself via the blog last week. She’s currently having an exhibition at the Anita Traverso Gallery in Melbourne, and given she’s a regular reader of my strange wee collection of sometimes creative, sometimes dog-inspired, often times design-oriented, occasionally foodie posts here at TSL, she thought I may be interested. Boy, was I ever!
Tracy graduated from the University of South Australia with a Fine Arts degree majoring in printmaking. Now based in Melbourne, her mixed media work is represented in private collections both in Australia and Europe. Regular readers will know I have a massive soft spot for great fibre art, and I think Tracy’s work looks just fantastic. I just wish I was going to be in Melbourne to see the exhibition in person.
If you’d like to read a little more about Tracy’s work, Dylan Rainforth from Art Guide has written about her influences. Otherwise, if you’re in Melbourne, you could head down to the Anita Traverso Gallery at 7 Albert Street, Richmond before the 24th November, and be sure to let me know how fab’ the show is…
These are great works.
Aren’t they, Kirsty? I’m in awe of anyone who can create like this…
Love the Exotic Bird….. they are great fun!
I think the Exotic Bird may just be my fave… maybe.
These remind me of some of the patchwork quilts I had when I was little, they’re great!
Your patchwork quilts sound better than my bloody Laura Ashley duvet cover!
Exotic indeed! I always look at this stuff and am blown away by the patience of artists like this – definitely not a talent I possess!
Sadly, Shira, me neither! A girl can dream…
I like the colors, but some of the pieces might be a bit too abstract for me. I think I need a little less subtlety.
Do you need it to be a little more empirical, my Science Teacher blogging bud?

As I can’t knit a stitch I can appreciate all the hard work that has gone into these!
I can’t knit to save myself, either! Watch for tomorrow’s post!!!
