Tracy Rocca’s work consists of intricate layers that are carefully built over time. From this process, they achieve a characteristic luminosity and unique sense of depth.
Her abstract compositions are inspired from every day organic imagery seen at home in New Mexico. With digital photography, she is able to capture unfocused colors and forms in the ordinary landscape. Her blurred images are meant to serve as a reminder that calm exists amidst the chaos of daily life.
Rocca’s subject matter has ranged from small, delicate living beings, such as butterflies, to awe-inspiring landscapes in the National Parks and Public Lands. In her work, Rocca seeks to preserve a moment in time and to capture a feeling of beauty and calm. Her blurred images create a space where the mind can rest and serve as a reminder that calm can exist amidst the chaos of daily life.
Tracy Rocca currently lives and works in Albuquerque, NM. Rocca received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Washington and her Post Baccalaureate from the California College of the Arts Extended Education.
