Tracey Deep has spent two decades working as a floral sculptor, with her art practice developing into the realm of environmental art and installations over the last 10 years. A creative adventurer and a biology enthusiast, Deep’s sculptures emerge from an accumulation of curious natural specimens that she takes back to her studio before transforming them into beautiful works of art.
Earning wide acclaim for her sustainable, ecological and beautiful works, Deep’s sculptures reflect a poetic play of light and shade, with earthly qualities and sensual forms all inspired by native plant life. Viewers are invited to revel in the natural world; to be engaged by whimsical shapes and patterns, vibrant and warm natural tones, graphic patterns and striking textures. Her natural works embody a fantastic sense of energy, mystique and wonder, allowing us to experience moments of dreaming, and to reconnect to the power of nature.
