What Tracey Bryant has to say about her artwork:

My work is driven by experimentation. I work with acrylic mediums that excite or inspire me such as iridescent, interference paints, texture and pourable mediums. My paintings are composed of many layers of textures and glazes to create a rich sense of depth, atmosphere and mood.
This body of work reflects my love of the rugged and fragile northern landscape. It explores themes of destruction and the revival of the spirit. The forces of nature and weather at work in my images are metaphors for subconscious issues of the heart and mind. I enjoy playing with juxtapositions of the literal and the metaphorical, for my work to occupy the space between abstract and reality.  
With my art I want to evoke a memory, a feeling, or place and to connect the viewer on a deep level, to a place where only they can go.
