Tracey Sylvester Harris
In her paintings, T.S. Harris presents a dazzling iconic vision of the female form that merges the past with the present. Inspired by found black and white snapshots from the mid-century, her paintings are colorful yet bittersweet, depicting fleeting moments captured almost a lifetime ago. Suspended in time, Harris’ stylish and elegant cropped figures put on scarlet lipstick, dream by the pool or sit in contemplation. With the context of their actions removed, the women become mysterious; they are alluring not for their bodies, but for the secrets they hold. Raised by two professional artists, Harris’s art career began at an early age. Initially showing in her family’s gallery and then branching out into other venues, her work has since shown in museums and galleries nationwide and featured in the movie, The Face of Love. Harris lives in San Luis Obispo.

His art has been received in venues from Hawaii to New York. At 26 he opened his own gallery in downtown Carmel By the Sea. He then spent three years traveling in Europe where he was influenced by Dali. Blurred nightlife scenes are now on Andrew's easel.
