About tracy hamer

Tracy makes playful paintings and drawings inspired by retro advertising and fashion magazines from the 50s and 60s. Skillful figurative subjects are splashed against an abstract background expressing both perfection and chaos. Looks of classic seduction and old time glamour stare at the viewer from within a lively backdrop populated by color blocks, drips, dots and lines. She assembles a cast of characters from suit man to lampshade woman to communicate attitude and state of being. Forms are cropped and isolated to create mystery and intrigue. In 2000 Tracy set up her art studio in Asia where she lives in Bali, Indonesia with her dog Ramona. instagram: tracyhamerart
