About Tracy Luff

Tracy Luff is known for her artworks which explore her sense of place, displacement and adaptation. Her career encompasses site-specific installations, public art, community workshops and commercial exhibitions both in Australia and abroad. While her artworks embody messages of environmental consciousness, they are always conceptually divergent and layered. Luff is inspired and driven by the innate beauty of material and its potential to convey concept. Highlights of Luff’s career include three major commission works created for “The Great Southern Line ANZAC Stories” project by Southern Tablelands Arts.  The three works are located at Goulburn, Moss Vale and Picton railway station. Additional career highlights include exhibiting in the Netherlands Art Museum two years running by invitation in 2015 and 2016.

2023 SWELL ARTWORK – The Last Dance 

The materials in this work have had many incarnations from plantation timber, pallet timber and cardboard packaging to artwork and then recycled several times again into different artworks. Use and re-use goes only so far until its current form can no longer function as intended – then it can be recycled and there are limits to that too. Recycling also has its own costs. When the well-meaning, environmentally conscious person stretches a resource to the point where it can no longer be used, it’s the last dance. Or is it?
