Tracy's new body of work centres around women's behaviour and includes Girls will be Girls , I Died for Beauty and in development Plastic Roses, a surreal film examining social behaviour within an imaginary world.
She is also working with History of Advertising Trust and Will Hurt on The Goddess of a 100 years project, which will be an experimental heritage film and interactive animation, planned to be exhibited at the D&AD Festival in 2020.
Tracy's collections are based strongly around historic storytelling including Agatha Christie, the Kings and Queens of England and British women over 800 years. The artwork is digitally created by combining her own photography of models, architecture and objects with textures, printmaking and mark making to create playful and surreal imagery.
