“BRODERTOWN” | Tracey Snelling
[New Frontier Performances and Installations]
With my artwork, the hardest decision seems to be how much detail I should add to a work. The more detail added, the more fleshed out the work is. Yet by keeping the work simple and only having necessary and particular details, there is more room left for the viewer to bring their past experiences and ideas to the interpretation of the work. This is a fine line I constantly ride with my work, sometimes purposely deviating one way or another to push the boundaries. In my installation Bordertown the combination between highly detailed works and more simple pieces allows for a balanced tension that helps to keep one immersed and involved in the environment.
