Tracey Tarling is a painter interested in conveying landscape as it resonates with a multitude of emotional energies. Her rich panels depict torrential storms and dark tides, dissolving into pools of soothing liquid calm. The water responds to the complexities of grey, brilliant blues and lavender horizons. Tarling’s unique mixed media approach uses multiple layers of oil, graphite, pastel, photos and ink, suggesting the communion between unseen fragments, life, death, and nature’s incessant drive for renewal.
Tarling’s work can be found in many significant collections including the Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver General Hospital, Lions Gate Hospital, as well as other corporate and private collections across the country and internationally. Most recently, Tarling was commissioned to create a magnificent multi paneled artwork for the new HOPE Center Health Facility in North Vancouver. Tarling has exhibited widely across Canada and internationally.
