Get lost in the city: Tracy Lee Lee’s intimate illustrations
Lying mentally in the city: Tracy J Lee with her illustrations takes us into a world of fleeting moments and contemplation.
We need to dream to keep ourselves alive: Tracy J Lee has thought it too. She has done her work thinking about all those moments where we often get mentally lost in the city, fix objects, buildings, people and thoughts they dissolve in the air. These moments are the subjects of her creations, often animated, to give the idea of the fleetingness of time, of a thought and a sensation, almost an epiphany.
People are lonely, a little because they feel that way and because they need to spend moments in solitude to reflect, contemplate and try to impress memories, which inevitably fade away. The images can also be read in reverse: as loops of everyday life to which we do not attach particular importance, moments of recurring isolation in the city.
Surely anyone can identify as one of the characters of her work, which become a way to share sensations, emotions and indeed, reflections.
