Tracy Walker


Location: London

Born in Singapore to parents stationed at a NZ army base in Changi and then raised in my home country New Zealand where we continued to move around due to army placements; my abstract work is built primarily around emotions and colour with only a suggestion of form but seldom to a point of definition. Buildings, vehicles and people feature domininantly, pictures that seem both childlike and threatening, engaging yet isolating; hinting at what lies beneath but not dictating what.
A self taught Artist with a background in theatre and music, I have been painting for the past 10 years since moving to the UK after taking a step back from performance work. I never paint by plan, prefering to rely on instinct and emotion, allowing the painting to establish itself. More recently I have expanded my practice into working with graphics programmes developing a more structured series for print based on an earlier painting 'Exodus'.
