About

Tracy Spadafora's painting, "Crop", from her "Persistence of Nature" series, is a mixed media encaustic painting in green, tan, and blue. The painting is on a braced wood panel measuring 16 x 16 x 1.5 inches. The background has an architectural plan of the “Big Dig” artery project in Boston, which is collaged to the panel and covered with many translucent layers of beeswax medium. The crop lines are inscribed into many layers of beeswax medium and filled in with oil paint to create an inlaid look. The green, tan and blue colors in the background are painted with layers of transparent oil paint. This piece is unframed and signed on the back. As Spadafora states, “intrigued by the elegant and complex patterns of leaves and other flora, I began incorporating them in my work as symbols of our natural environment. In my paintings these organic forms are juxtaposed with symbols of our man-made environment, represented by schematic diagrams and architecture plans of the artery project in Boston, MA. The leaves, pods, flowers and seeds often take on a whimsical quality as they hang, float, and blossom from a background of roads, parking lots, and industrial parks, ultimately reshaping these structured surroundings. In these works natural structures and man-made structures converge and collide, creating a dialogue between these opposing forces”. Tracy Spadafora is a mixed-media artist based in the Boston area. Her work, which explores themes of nature and science, has been exhibited throughout the US and is included in numerous corporate and private collections.
