Tracy Watts' idiosyncratic paintings provide a psychological confrontational, and emotive response to the figurative. Instantly recognisable in style, providing representations of art historic narratives plunged into modernity.
Watts' new body of work 'Special People’ turned towards portraiture with a flourish of flamboyance and attitude. Creative muses entice her with their strength, individuality and talents. From the visual arts, music, performance art, burlesque.
Watts' contextual passion came to the fore whilst studying for a MA Degree in Painting. Researching contextual symbolics, such as Foliage, landscapes, still life objects and animals, as well as aesthetics of Renaissance and Mannerists. Expanding her imagination onto the visual plane.
