Tracie Cheng

Tracie Cheng

Hometown: Texas

Based in: Connecticut

Tracie Cheng's paintings call to mind natural phenomena with a playful and dynamic quality of space and movement. Interested in patterns, forms, and fractals in nature, and how they densely overlap in the world around us, Tracie creates ethereal spaces that refashion our typical perspectives. There is a richness in the fluid layers and interweaving of her lines and paint, all working together to form a textured story—not dissimilar from her own life experience. As the first of her Taiwanese family to be born in the United States, Tracie grew up with the complexities of both cultures which has shaped her paintings in significant ways. In her practice, a style has emerged that channels aspects of Chinese brush painting, abstraction, and architectural renderings. Tracie's paintings recall beauty and wonder in the everyday, questioning the relationship between the seen and the unseen.

Tracie attended the University of Texas in Austin and graduated with a degree in architecture. After several years of architectural work, her desire to shape environments shifted to the visual arts. She has shown her work at galleries in Los Angeles, New York City, Vancouver, and Shanghai. One of her first major projects was a series of paintings for Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, and her paintings are now in public and private collections all over the world. Tracie feels fortunate to be pursuing art full-time, and navigating work and life alongside her husband, sculptor Eóin Burke, and their son in New England.

More About Tracie Cheng

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Even in the most ordinary, I am always seeking the extraordinary. I intentionally absorb life, stories, and experiences in and out of my own normal days, and subconsciously watch them unfold onto the canvas.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

There is so much planning and strategizing required in life, so I try to do less of that when I'm in studio. My paintings thrive off of flexibility and spontaneity, which can be a space of surprising calm. My creative process includes thinking less and making more, and letting the discipline of creating open up new ideas and expressions in my work.
