Tracey Falcon is a multimedia visual artist based in Whitstable, Kent, UK. Tracey works across a range of media including video, projection, text, print, painting and sculpture. Endlessly curious, Tracey's practice focuses on experimentation and play. She has a passion for the natural environment and uses found objects and imagery from the woodlands near her home in Kent as a basis for her work.
In 2018, Tracey suffered a spinal injury which left her unable to walk and impacted her practice immensely. She discovered new artistic directions, reignited her creativity and found relief in lockdown. No longer able to produce the heavier more sculptural works she favoured for the previous 20 years, now she spends her time painting with oils, experimenting with natural found objects and creating digital compositions using photographs of trees.
She has run many community-oriented projects working with, amongst others: Medicin Sans Frontiers; Hong Kong Youth Arts Festival; The British Council; Whitstable Yacht Club; University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University.
Tracey is also an artist educator, learning, engagement and project manager and has worked with many arts organisations and galleries including Turner Contemporary, Stour Valley Arts, Canterbury Museums and Galleries, Workers of Art, People United and as a sessional lecturer at several universities. Interaction, intervention and inclusion are central to her motivation. Her work is interpretive with a strong social and environmental foundation. She is one of the founding members of Outdoor Studios CIC.
She has a BA in Fine Art from Kent Institute of Art and Design and an MA in Arts Criticism from University of Kent.
