Book of Etiquette
Tracey Harris studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and completed her training in London while she received her Master’s degree in visual arts. She utilizes thin layers of oil paint to create luminous hyper-real images. With an intelligent sense of humor, Harris juxtaposes common objects against classically rendered nudes and uncommon phrases on seemingly academic book spines. The result is a social commentary on gender roles and contemporary psychology that is both serious and humorous.
