In an endeavour to raise funds for a national cardiac foundation, Tracey and her six collaborators have fittingly entitled their exhibit Journey Of The Heart.

Tracey’s work will take viewers on a moving journey that spans five countries across five continents, that reflects both a physical and emotional voyage. Her work will be largely comprised of micro portions of the landscapes she’s encountered, manipulated to macro, abstract view. Tracey’s work intends to transport audiences on a positive, elated, at times sirenic exploration, whilst ultimately retaining its original degree of physicality.
