About Tracy Lévesque
Nicknamed "Van Gogh's little sister" for her lineal expression, bold use of color and passion for painting nature; Tracy Levesque's work is truly a celebration of existence.
Tracy Levesque is a child of the New England landscape. Born in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, Levesque spent the first 18 years of her life immersed in the beauty of this breathtaking rural countryside.
Inspired by nature, Levesque started out as a realistic artist but quickly abandoned realism for a more impressionistic, symbolic style that spoke more to the psychological realities of human existence rather than the more conventional interpretations of them. Believing that nature is the only true mentor for the artist and that beauty resides in every living thing, she began interpreting her world through texture and line and transforming what she saw into her own version of reality. Alive with the spontaneity of line and the beauty of color, Levesque's paintings are vibrant and full of life - like looking through a stained glass window into a fairy tale world that beckons you to visit forever.
Levesque began her career as a professional artist in 1999 and since then has shown her work in New York City and in varying venues across the United States. Her work can be found at art festivals, barbershops, bars, restaurants, open studios, art walks, galleries and over 200 private collections across the globe.
Levesque studied Graphic Design at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and received a double BA in Theater Arts and English and American Literature from Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. She is a member of the Arts League of Lowell, Arts Worchester, Western Avenue Studios Artists Association and currently has work on display at the Loading Dock Gallery and the Brush Gallery in Lowell, MA.
Levesque is currently working out of her studio at the Western Avenue Lofts in Lowell, Massachusetts.
"Art is not a luxury. Art is a philosophy on life. Creation is the key to survival. I am a painter of people, things and places; a painter of existence. My work, quite simply, is an expression of my life and the experiences I have had. Like a memory, a painting is a frozen moment in time brimming full of subjective meaning. It will never mean the same thing twice, it will never mean the same thing to the same person, but in the end, it will always mean something because it was created with purpose, passion and a true intent to celebrate existence."
