Tracy Rocca
American, b. 1974
Follow

Primarily self-taught, Tracy Rocca creates color-field paintings that are inspired by and allude to actual locations. Using light as her subject matter, Rocca obscures details in an effort to capture a landscape’s expressive aura. She paints with soft, mongoose brushes and oil paint blended with walnut oil, achieving a hazy, ethereal effect in her work. Based on photographs, her earlier works such as Back of the Boat (2010) and Corn Field (2011) included partly legible scenes, while her more recent paintings focus purely on colors that convey a landscape’s mood. Rocca adopted this approach after driving in the car and realizing that the scenery became less defined and more tranquil as she moved faster. This led her to slow down her sped-up visions by reverting them to pure color.
