Artesyn by Tracey Roberts
Musical art at it’s best, showing three original art prints
Tracey Roberts is a contemporary visual and performing artist, an established singer-songwriter-musician, who enjoys a rare and wonderful neurological condition called synesthesia, where one sense involuntarily invokes another. In her case, she sees colours and shapes whilst listening to, performing and creating music and her artwork is a reflection of the way she internally visualises different genres of music, certain musical instruments, emotions around music and related musical themes.
Her artistic style has evolved over several years from figurative interpretations to using more abstract elements reflecting a headspace, to combining musical instruments and symbols within natural landscapes. Most of her works are limited edition prints from original, hand-drawn illustrations which have been digitally embellished to create richly intense and complex interpretations of all things musical. More recently she has been exploring acrylics.
Tracey’s work is distinctively renowned for her sensuous, musical themes using strong, saturated colours and the “energy” shapes she calls “crystalism”. To share her experience of synesthesia, which for Roberts means seeing colours and shapes when she hears music, the artist often presents a special musical performance as part of her art exhibitions where she “sings her pictures”. The audience gets a glimpse into the brain of a music-colour synesthete via music, lyrics and explanations about the artwork surrounding the artist in her performing space. It’s colourful, intriguing, very musical and lots of fun.
Through her own diverse journey as a musician and performer, and with over 20 years of experience in the music arena, Tracey Roberts’ images are imbued with an acute understanding of music, the music business and all that stems from the relationship between musicians and their instruments of choice. Many of her exhibitions include a musical performance, which is, of course, intrinsically part of her work.
She regularly exhibits her work and for the last 10 years has participated in the annual Dandenong Ranges Open Studios event held in Autumn each year.
