Tracey Deep – Floral Sculptures

There is so much in nature that is curious and awe-inspiring. The range of shapes, colours, textures and patterns seems endless, and I can totally understand why Tracey is so inspired by this.

Her floral sculptures highlight the amazing natural beauty which we are surrounded by. By using unconventional items such as thorns, thistles, seed pods, branches and wire, her pieces celebrate the already sculptural forms and transforms them into stunning pieces of art.

Tracey’s work varies in size from small living sculptures (Floral) to grand exhibition pieces, all which proudly display her passion for nature and genuine appreciation of its beauty.

Who or what inspires you? Where do your ideas come from?

Nature feeds my inspiration. I am very drawn to patterns, shadows, textures and light. I also draw inspiration from the materials I source, that can inspire a sculpture or installation.

I think it is lovely to see an artist in action so I am excited to share this video with you from the Art Gallery of NSW. It really shows Tracey’s passion for her materials and skill in creating each piece.
