mixed media: 15 years of past work
The entire installation is arranged and constructed according to the principles of ecclesiastical architecture. The first room, which Tracy describes as the "passive space," is a storage area. A combination of his altarpieces, crosses, tabernacles, and oil paintings are housed there.
The "active space," which consists of an altar to the left and a sacristy to the right, functions as a performance space. This area contains huge, golden triptychs, dark Stations of the Cross, an altar pierced with machetes, and rows of mesquite chairs.
The installation is a summation of the past fifteen years of the artist's work. The gallery is 3,500 square feet, divided longitudinally by a wall. Born in Bellevue, Ohio, 1943, lives and works in San Ygnacio, TX.
