Item Description

Caret Down Primary

“There’s more than meets the eye.”

So often we come across a multitude of things that are more complex than we’ll ever really know. Just being alive means acknowledging the seen and at times having to trust in the unseen: what is visible is not always the full picture, and what is beneath the surface can speak volumes.

There is a richness in the combination of these layers- all working together to form a textured story. My work is a play on space and depth, structure and fluidity. As I interweave lines and paint, the painting takes on an unexpected, yet natural evolution and movement. I want my paintings to draw people in with questions of knowing more. I want a calm understanding to be felt, despite what may never be known. I want us to find more possibility in the intangible, and allow for it to come into its own.


Shipping: can take up to 10 days after order for the painting to be en route to the buyer.

Artist Profile

Born: 1985

Hometown: Texas

Lives and Works: 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. The first of her Taiwanese family to be born in the United States, Tracie grew up with the complexities of both cultures shaping 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. In 2016, Tracie began a partnership with Restoration Hardware and was showcased along with other artists at Scope Miami Beach. She has shown her work at galleries in Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Shanghai. Tracie has been commissioned to create a series of paintings for Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, a collection for MGM Macau, and her paintings are in private collections all over the world, including Switzerland, Dubai, and the U.S. Tracie feels fortunate to be pursuing art, and navigating work and life alongside her husband, sculptor Eóin Burke, and their infant son Alden.
