Tracy Dods

Tracy Dods was born in Cairns, Queensland in 1970 where she went on to study visual art at Queensland College of the Arts. She now resides in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Tracy’s paintings merge keen social observation with poignant symbolic metaphor to illuminate the heart of the contemporary condition. The results are expressed in colours which are bold, true and beautiful. Her work is thoroughly infused with her undeniable commitment to human freedom.

Much of Tracy’s work depicts the lushness of the human form alongside the exciting colours of Australia's beaches. The style fluid and distinctive...but what's it all about? It's about the affinity we feel for the sea, the question of why are we drawn to the beach for both frivolity and fun and in times of introspection, the indifference with which we treat the oceans and each other.
