2-10 February @ Gallows Gallery, 53 Glyde Street, Mosman Park ∙
Presented by: Tracey Harvey ∙
Tracey Harvey’s first solo exhibition in Perth is inspired by, and is also supporting, children and their families who are suffering the effects of Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), otherwise known as brittle bone disease. A percentage of sales from her exhibition will help raise funds for the establishment of an ‘integrated care facility’ dedicated to OI at Princess Margaret/Perth Children’s Hospital.
Tracey’s association with OI is also personal as her god-daughter, Claire, has brittle bones. Tracey and Claire love to paint together, and one of Claire’s paintings, along with one of Tracey’s, will be auctioned on opening night with all proceeds donated to the cause.
Tracey is working closely with the OI Society of Australia to assist Associate Professor Aris Siafarikas, Paediatric Endocrinologist, in this endeavour.
With a background in science and physiotherapy Tracey has a great sense of how scientific research and creativity have many synergies. She understands that great discoveries can only be made through trial and error and frequently through unexpected mistakes or wrong turns. Her paintings are vibrant and thoughtful, often contemplating the wonder of life at the same time as its fragility.
