TS Harris

In her paintings, Tracey Sylvester Harris presents a dazzling, iconic vision of the female

form that merges the past with the present. The paintings speak to the central issues of

human existence- desire and loss, impermanence and beauty, and the many dimensions of

our connections with others

Inspired by found, black and white snapshots from the mid-century, her paintings are

colorful yet bittersweet, depicting fleeting moments captured a lifetime ago. Suspended in

time, Harris’ stylish and elegant, cropped figures put on scarlet lipstick, dream by the

pool or sit in contemplation. With the context of their lives removed, the women become

mysterious; they are alluring not for their bodies, but for the secrets they hold.

Raised by two professional artists, Harris’s art career began at an early age. Initially

showing in her family’s gallery and then branching out into other venues, her work has

since shown in museums and galleries nationwide and has been featured on the cover of

numerous books and also in the movie, The Face of Love.
