Tracy Brown Art
Tracy Brown was born and raised outside of Detroit, Michigan. Tracy believes in the ability of art to transform and bridge minds into understanding and unity. She moved to the desert to teach and make art during the great recession without intentions of staying but fell in love with the slower pace lifestyle, culture, and landscape of the desert.
Over the last decade, Tracy has had an artist studio in downtown Tucson and has been actively showing her art in feminist exhibitions nationally and internationally. She has an extensive exhibition and publication history and has shown alongside some of the greats including the Guerrilla Girls.
Open Studio Tour
I am interested in the dark and humorous side of desire and beauty and the destructive nature of marketing and advertising on women. This interest has come about through navigating and greatly healing a 20-year struggle with an ED. Before getting treatment, I used creating art and studying feminism as ways to process and cope with my experience. It was on that journey that I began to learn about issues that historically placed women in a role of submission. I create my work as a purge and purification of these ideas. My process helps me to reclaim power over the repetitive images and messages we are faced with on a regular basis.
