Tracy Algar | fine art & prints


My art reflects my busy mind and I have a deep curiosity to know more and look deeper.  As I go about my life, I collect colours and shapes with my eyes, and they go into a reservoir, connected to a feeling or thought, that I can tap into later when I’m in front of a canvas with a brush in my hand. I work spontaneously with colour and marks in a range of mediums, including acrylic paint, pencil, ink and oil pastel.

Each painting is a personal expression or reflection of a thought or feeling caught in a fleeting moment. My artworks develop intuitively and many contain happy accidents created by the adding of layers and the making of marks, and the subtracting of parts of the painting by colour blocking.

My artworks can be found in private collections in South Africa, Namibia, Malawi, England, Wales, The Isle of Man, France, Canada, the USA and Australia.
