Kym Tracey is a Visual Artist and educator based in Kildare and is a graduate of the National College of Art and Design. 

Kym's work aims to challenge the line between nostalgia and discomfort. In particular she is interested in imagery rooted in magical realism. Recent works have been reminiscent of Irish tradition. Her process involves archiving vintage images, creating props, photography and combining all of these elements into colourful contemporary paintings. 

Recent exhibitions include “Páipéar” a group exhibition hosted by Hangtough Contemporary and "you breathe differently down here" an exhibition in Draoicht gallery curated by Amanda Coogan. Kym’s work has been published on platforms such as “Artists Talk Magazine”, “The Irish Tatler” and “The Irish Arts Review” and is also included in the 2023 Irish Design Shop Calander.

Kym is currently based in Pallas Projects/ Studios, Dublin 8.
