About the Artist

Tracy Brown was born and raised outside of Detroit, Michigan and obtained a BFA with a major in art education from Michigan State University in 2005. She has been an artist teacher for the past 14 years and she is dedicated to instilling a passion and appreciation for creation and self expression into her students. Tracy believes in the ability of art to transform and bridge minds into understanding and unity. She moved to the desert to teach and make art during the great recession without intentions of staying but fell in love with the slower pace lifestyle, culture and landscape of the desert.

Over the last decade Tracy has had an artist studio in downtown Tucson and has been actively showing her art in feminist exhibitions nationally and internationally. Her work has been on display in group shows in venues such as the SOMARTS Cultural Center in San Francisco, Denise Bibro Gallery in New York, Gallery 825 in Los Angeles, the National Steinbeck Center, the Women’s Museum of California, The Untitled Space in Tribeca and the Czong Institute of Contemporary Art in Gimpo, South Korea. Her work on male bonding is included in the private collection of the Gwangju Cultural Foundation.

About the Process

Much of my work is an iconoclastic purge of our culture’s images of women. Through the use of collage, drawing, painting and video I use my work to explore the world through a personal and feminist perspective. My work incorporates traditional mixed and new media art methods and is a push against mass media’s exploitation of the female psyche. I am interested in the dark and sometimes humorous side of desire and beauty and the destructive nature of marketing and advertising on women. Another common theme in my work is bringing attention to the continued gender inequities within the arts. I am interested in how repetitive images and messages within our cultural lexicon clearly and subtly objectify, diminish, exclude and reinforce a woman’s place of submission in our society. Whether I am navigating these issues or delving into the application of a particular media, color or traditional subject matter, the perspective of being a woman who strives for a better world is at the core of my work.
