Shadow Poem

Sculpture and installations by Tracey Deep
See online catalogue below...

25 September to 13 November 2016

Exhibition opening: Sunday 25 September, 11am. 
To be opened by Robin Powell, Garden Columnist at The Sydney Morning Herald.
Tracey Deep’s sculpture and installation art practice has evolved through years of working with nature - inspired by materials rescued from landfill, organic materials and recycled industrial materials. They all share a common thread - a textural form inspiring a concept then a transition to a totally new form through weaving, cutting, hand sewing or whatever it takes to create the inspired form. Tracey uses repetition, rhythm, a poetic play of light and shade. The works, when complete, throw mesmerising shadows that become the sketch and soul of the work.
When Deep fans out the natural fibres (bamboo or driftwood) into circles, she is creating magic circles. Inside the circle of aesthetic nature, there is peace. In this exciting new exhibition Deep creates magic using unexpected materials and her distinctive approaches to engaging with an audience.
