Power 1 by Ann Tracy

Power 1 by Ann Tracy

A fascination with electrical transformers and old factories is the source material for “Power: Lines & Shapes”, new digital fine art by Ann Tracy from January 12th to February 24th at Asylum Gallery, located inside HQ, 1713 25th St. (behind the gray fence at 25th & R Sts) in Midtown Sacramento. There are Second Saturday receptions scheduled for January 12th and February 9th from 6 to 9 pm. There will be a free Thursday evening performance and reception featuring The Frets, Sacramento’s newest indie band, at 7 pm on February 7th. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 pm or by appointment by calling 916-804-6095.

“I’ve always been captivated by power transformers”, said Tracy. “They look like strange gods or goddesses who bestow electricity to us. Without these “divinities of power” I would not be able to create digital art. These huge figures of steel and wire have a Duchampian elegance to them. I’m also intrigued by old factories. Perhaps it’s part of my heritage as I grew up in New England, living in many old mill towns.”

Tracy is a digital alchemist with a strong streak of Dada sensibility and overtones of conceptual playfulness mixed with Aztalan color theory and outsider sagaciousness. She has been exhibiting her work since 1998 in galleries from New York to Maui to Japan. Her art can be found in collections in New York, California, Georgia and Texas.

This new work will be the largest that Tracy has ever exhibited ranging from 24” x 30” works on canvas to a 48” x 62” printed using a state-of-the-art Lambda photo press straight from the digital files and mounted on a lightweight but strong material know as sintra without frames or mats. Also in the show will be Tracy’s new work based on “fractals”, which are shapes and colors generated by mathematics, which she then pulls into computer art programs to manipulate.
