About

 

TRACY DILLON TIMMINS works in painting, drawing, collage, video, and installation.

Her work is a meditation on her earliest memories growing up in rural Oregon.  Residues of nature, such as hair and fur, reflect her childhood spent on her father's llama farm and wild-life rehabilitation outfit. After losing her mother at an early age, her feelings of isolation left Tracy to become fascinated with contrary notions of women in pop-media.  Film, glossy fashion magazines and entertainment were devoured in her solitude. Steeped in the era of supermodels, slasher films and MTV, Tracy’s work investigates what subliminal effects these cultural influences have on society. 

Born in Eugene, Oregon, Tracy Dillon Timmins lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received BFA (Award of High Distinction) in Painting and Drawing from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA in 2006 and a Masters Degree in Studio Art from NYU in New York City in 2011.

Her work has been exhibited at 3A Gallery (New York), Alter Space (San Francisco, CA), Fisher Parrish (Brooklyn, NY), Planthouse (New York, NY), Rena Bransten Gallery (San Francisco), Space 1026 (Philadelphia, PA),  Roberts and Tilton (Los Angeles, CA), Lobot Gallery (Oakland, CA), Eleanor Harwood Gallery (San Francisco, CA), Disjecta (Portland, OR), and internationally at Das Institut für Alles Möglische (Berlin, Germany), Hinterconti, (Hamburg, Germany), Glasgow School of Art (Glasgow, Scotland).

Tracy currently teaches studio painting and drawing at NYU.
