Kym Tracey is a Visual Artist and secondary school teacher based in Kildare and has recently graduated from the National College of Art and Design. Her work is a homage to moments in the past which she explores through manipulating old found photographs.
Kym works primarily in oils but also experiments with a variety of other mediums such as Lino print and charcoal work. Combining the funky patterns of 1970's wallpaper, the red or green 1990's carpet in every Irish home with her archived images, she creates nostalgic paintings that celebrate youth. Recent exhibitions include “Rising” a group exhibition hosted by Hangtough Contemporary and a solo exhibition in Kilcock Art Gallery. Kym’s work has been published on platforms such as “Artists Talk Magazine”, “The Irish Tatler” and “The Irish Arts Review”
"80's Party" as part of "you breathe differently down here" Draoicht gallery exhibition.
