Tracy Spadafora has long worked with themes exploring the relationship of man & nature. Everything Underlying, an exhibit opening on September 16, 2017, is no exception. This show will include paintings and assemblage from both her DNA and Evolve Series and address critical issues of environmental concern: climate change and genetic food modification. In the DNA Series Spadafora uses DNA sequences to provide visual patterning and symbolic reference which are then layered on top of images that offer the viewer an open narrative. The Evolve Series departs from the more cognitive aspects of her work and employs the organic and playful nature of wax as a medium, resulting in dramatic, mysterious and meditative landscapes. Spadafora states, "my work suggests a dubious relationship between humanity and the environment - systems that are continually in flux as they create, destroy and reassert themselves".
Tracy Spadafora lives and works in Westborough, MA. She has exhibited her work throughout the United States. Her artwork has been included in numerous publications and in private and corporate collections, including the Danforth Museum, Harvard University, and Bank of America.
Everything Underlying will be on view at the Duckworth through October 29th.
