Tracy Casagrande Clancy
Mixed Media Artist
Perhaps the only consistent theme in my work as a mixed media artist is my use of layering. Though primarily an encaustic artist, I enjoy working across many mediums including acrylics, oils and collage. I believe my deliberate use of layering (regardless of the medium) is a direct result of having spent many years working as a pediatric grief counselor. In doing so, I came to understand the true richness in each of us, the striation of each life, and subsequently each death. In my work, I aim communicate the complex nature of our experiences, interactions with one another and the evolution of perspective and human experience from these intersections.
