''The koala hears the eucalyptus
Explode in the burning landscape,
Survival favours the swiftest
And the instinct to escape.''

Professional artist Tracie MacVean works full-time at GIGS Artists Studios, Wodonga, Australia.
Tracie’s paintings question our role in relation with the natural world and how we perceive ourselves to create deeply conceptual and thought provoking works.
Environmental themes have always dominated her paintings yet a passion for the human form is ever present to create a sense of either unity or conflict between human beings and nature. Her paintings are infused with raw emotion as viewers are drawn in by the layers of meaning in each work.
