Tracy Rocca
Tracy Rocca
New Paintings
(Railyard) | November 7 – December 7
Celebrated neoimpressionist Tracy Rocca uses walnut oils and alkyd to apply thin glazes of color, with each layer blending and obscuring color and detail into unspecified, but familiar settings. It was her frequent childhood commute that led to her soft-focused interpretations of landscape: Rocca realized that the faster she moved the more tranquil the roadside scenery appeared. Previously working from photographs of Seattle and the Southwest, exploring the world around her through highly saturated color, she now produces purely from her imagination; like in the haze of a pleasant dream, the particularity of place remains out of reach.
