The Artist Says:


My work is a reflection of the self. The mirror image I see every day subliminally finds its way into my practice, resulting in art infused with colour, texture, and figurative forms. Every painting represents a new day, a new diary entry, and a new emotion. While I explore a variety of genres, the common theme in my work is abstract design, through which my personal cosmic experiences and passions are transposed into two or three-dimensional imagery. This abstract element can be found in each painting, just as elements of landscape painting can be found in all my abstract works. My background training in design has translated into a passion for creating visually aesthetic compositions that I can offer to the community.



Collectors Say:


“What I like in painting is colour, texture, and energy. So, when I happened on Steve Tracy’s paintings in San Francisco, I was immediately drawn to them. With many Impressionist paintings, one cannot clearly see the whole impact of the painting unless we stand at a distance. With Steve Tracy’s work, the viewer can enjoy each brushstroke, each of the wide range of vibrant colours used so profusely, both close-up and from afar... [he] has added a wide repertoire of styles. His brilliance is the instinctive use of them in a harmonious, yet distinctive,manner that creates a finely balanced work of art.”

- Shep Brozman, Art Collector, New York
