Tracey Snelling

Influenced by film, landscape, books, and architecture, Bay-Area based artist Tracey Snelling creates structures that reference both popular culture and history. Snelling’s work involves a wide range of technical processes and materials. Often working with a photograph of an actual building, this may lead to a sculpture of the same building, which in turn, is photographed once again. Scale continually grows and shrinks within Snelling’s universe mutating and distorting each reiteration of the image. Visually reminiscent of old film noir sets, these memorable photograph sculptural hybrids explore the psychological aspects of shelter and home, doors and windows.
