Collage Dreamscapes by Tracy Jager
Vancouver based artist Tracy Jager (also known online as Living Feral) works in a number if mediums, including photography, drawing and collage.
From some of these collages, I get the impression of the covers of old sci-fi novels. The quality of the images that she uses makes me think instantly that these come from very old copies of National Geographic or some such publication, which lends a universal yet very personal kind of nostalgia to Tracy‘s collages. Even the titles of these works all tell a story, pleading with the viewer to look for just a minute longer to unravel the narrative at hand.
Tracy’s photography is equally interesting. The subject matter of her photos, usually objects and spaces – homes, alleys, junk left to rot in either of those - that might normally be overlooked are placed in a new light and become strange, mysterious and worthy of exploration.
