About

In her paintings, Tracey Sylvester Harris presents a dazzling, iconic vision of the female form that merges the past with the present. The paintings speak to the central issues of human existence- desire and loss, impermanence and beauty, and the many dimensions of our connections with others. Inspired by found, black and white snapshots from the mid-century, her paintings are colorful yet bittersweet, depicting fleeting moments captured a lifetime ago. Suspended in time, Harris’ stylish and elegant, cropped figures put on scarlet lipstick, dream by the pool or sit in contemplation. With the context of their lives removed, the women become mysterious; they are alluring not for their bodies, but for the secrets they hold. Raised by two professional artists, Harris’s art career began at an early age. Initially showing in her family’s gallery and then branching out into other venues, her work has since shown in museums and galleries nationwide and has been featured on the cover of numerous books and also in the movie, The Face of Love.
