Tracey Deep – Floral Sculptures – Redfern

Tracey Deep of Floral Sculptures at her Redfern Studio

This is a repost, but honestly you can’t have enough of Tracey Deep!

It was a true delight to spend some time with the very talented Tracey Deep at her studio in Redfern.

Tracey trained as a florist, before starting to make floral sculptures and installations using found objects that celebrate Australian native flora.

If you ever find yourself near Tracey at the Sydney Flower Market stick close and learn.

Tracy’s work is breathtakingly beautiful. She uses the floral and found objects to create ethereal pieces that when hung on a wall cast shadows and become something else again. ” All of my inspiration comes from nature. I take a holiday with my kids – go bushwalking – I find branches or discarded objects

What is your creative process?

“It all starts from sourcing the right materials, which then inspires the creation of the piece, which in turn comes to life through installation. Repetition of material creates patterns that seem to give off a sense of energy and vibration, almost like a living organism from the natural world. Then shadows appear, which becomes a sketch of the work, the spirit etched onto walls or ceilings, leaving its mark.”

As well her art, Tracey also takes on commisions big and small for her floral sculphtures.

She shows at the new Saint Cloche gallery in Paddington.  I will give a heads up when the next show it on.
