The Illustrated Guide to Death, Dying & Insanity
Tracey Robinson – The Illustrated Guide to Death, Dying & Insanity
Tracey’s work is primarily a visual reaction to the events in her life since immigrating to Canada in December 2009. It is a black comedy of unfortunate events. The artist presents dark themes through highly decorative images, and these images change as circumstances, both positive and negative, unfold in her life.
