Tracey Deep has spent two decades working as a floral sculptor, with her art practice developing into the realm of environmental art and installations over the last 10 years, with her work featured in many group and solo exhibitions.
Her passion is creating sustainable art from industrial or organic recycled materials that have been used, discarded, or discontinued. Her works reflect a poetic play of light and shade, with earthly qualities and sensual forms all inspired by native plant life.
With ‘Spring Dreaming’ she has created a living sculpture for Wollongong Central that’s a celebration of rare and beautiful indigenous flora. Viewers are invited to revel in the natural world; to be engaged by whimsical shapes and patterns, vibrant and warm natural tones, graphic patterns and striking textures. Her garden of paradise is a captivating dimension filled with energy, mystique and wonder that allows us a moment of dreaming, and to reconnect to the power of nature.
Curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery and presented by Wollongong Central, this magnificent installation is on display to the general public during centre trading hours until October 25, suspended from the skylight/atrium on Level 1.
