Tracy Dillon Timmins
Shadows, Gestures, and other Stand-ins

Using collaged imagery, Tracy Dillon Timmins draws on isolated subliminal gestures sourced from various media. Hands, limbs, and features are delicately rendered in pencil and paint to suggest surreal portraits that engage with textures, fibers and rippling marbled spaces.  Marbling techniques are used to flow between the hard contour edge of a figure and the space between and beyond. The resulting facsimile functions as a careful response to impulsively assimilated information within the collages.

Timmins’ autobiographical content studies the narrative power of the picture to create associations and fill in the gaps of memory. Fur, hair, feathers, scales and other residuals of nature often allude to Tracy’s earliest memories of her father’s work in wildlife rescue. Due to her upbringing in rural Oregon, as a teen Tracy became entranced with the contrary notion of pop media and entertainment. Television, glossy magazines, and fashion intertwined with wildlife are favorite subjects for interpretation.
