Bio Tracy-Mae Chambers
Tracy-Mae Chambers is a First Nations artist who focuses mainly on mixed media and abstract acrylics. There has been a long time stereotype that First Nations cultures use every part of anything that they take from Mother Earth for their use. In this case, the stereotype is correct! I believe that there can be a harmonious connection between objects and art. I mould, manipulate and transform even the simplest objects into an appetite for the eye. I strive to express our wasteful culture though art and am happiest when I can incorporate objects found by friends and family into my work. The fall of 2012 will be an exciting time for me and the progression of my work. I have been lucky enough to secure mentorships with two wonderfully talented Canadian artists. Christ Belcourt and Linda Lundstrom will both me mentoring me in Sept ember and October.
