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.
It was Rocca’s commute that led to the interpretation of landscape in her work. The faster she moved, the more tranquil the roadside landscape appeared. By obscuring the details of a particular scene, Rocca’s fluid and expressive works resonate with a similar calmness.
