Tracy Colby: 2006-07 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

I created a series 5 of large-scale paintings based on geologic structures.

The paintings were created in Adobe Photoshop. But unlike earlier series, the grant allowed me to print in very large scale (greater than 1m x 1m). The benefits to me are quite clear: The change in scale transforms the experience of the work, from intimate personal pieces to “grand” environments. In fact, I have begun to consider an additional life for these pieces as wall coverings that create reference to the natural world. I am also considering taking some of the images, and putting them into repeat for textiles, or referencing them for woven designs.

Two of the pieces quite clearly speak to me of motion. I plan to use them, or elements from them in animations.

The grant has given me a new view of my work and insights into further development. It has helped me to understand that, happily, I still have an essential “textile” sensibility while now working in motion.
