Tracy Stirzaker sees herself as an observer and critic of contemporary Australian society and is inspired by her lived experience.
Stirzaker explores embodied emotional experiences and socio-cultural factors through the repetition of words, motifs and symbols. The solo exhibition Songs of Myself draws from personal exploration into the self and positive affirmations. In a world of self-doubt and low self-esteem and inspired by the work of Marisa Peer, Brene Brown, Johann Hari and Australia’s Sarah Wilson, Stirzaker leans into her inner canary to seek and affirm her place in the world with works on paper, encaustics, installation and textiles.
Grande is the ultimate artistic expression of prestige living on the grandest of scales.
