Collective Memory: Sabine

14H x 16.5W x 6.5D Encaustic Mixed Media Sculpture

Wired for Wall Hanging or can be displayed as Free-Standing

Plaster casting, encaustic/wax, collage, ink, graphite

Sabine speaks five languages, though she only does so in private conversation (she feels no need to be braggadocious). She almost oozed into being, subtly showing me who she is, subtle luminosity. Sabine is gorgeous in any setting– displayed alone or when displayed with Camille, Imogen, Lucia and/or Astrid. Though she can very well hold her own and stand or hang alone, Sabine prefers company. She loves people and prefers the chaos of both strangers and friends and has been learning to play the accordion for thirteen years but still can’t play an entire song.

Influenced by her experience as a Master’s-level pediatric grief counselor and social worker, Tracy Casagrande Clancy’s work examines the influence of life and death among us, as evidenced in the tiniest details of our daily interactions.
Tracy also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts, which inspired the integration of her love of photography with the encaustic process, an ancient painting form that utilizes both hot and cold wax application. Her work includes sculptural studies on the human form which combine her love of layering materials and the human body in all its presentations.
Layered foundational photographic and written images are communicated in Tracy’s encaustic work by employing a combination of techniques. Tracy’s process can require months of incorporating materials including wax, chalk, collage, acrylic, crushed glass, metal, pastel and oil paints in order to achieve depth, texture and pattern in her finished pieces. Casagrande Clancy’s work evokes an ethereal sensibility, encouraging the viewer to look deeper than the surface might initially suggest.
