Though currently a resident of Newfield, NY, Treacy has studied art extensively at such prestigious institutions as the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The University of Pennsylvania where she earned a Master’s Degree, and the Barnes Foundation. A painter largely known for her printmaking, Treacy creates contemporary realist images with impactful contrasts of light and dark and a keen and intuitive use of shadows. Her paintings most often depict landscapes with buildings, still lifes, solitary animals, and interiors devoid of figures.
In her art, Treacy describes herself as “Being in a state of ignorance…sort of like traveling a dark corridor trying to recognize familiar landmarks that have meaning for me. ” She compares her appreciation for these landmarks to Rorschach Inks, potentially expressing significance or meaning differently for her than for others. “That is why it may not be important to say what a painting may represent or mean.”
About her process, Treacy says, “I start a painting from a very abstract outline of light and shadow, and build a narrative by adding form and color. Though I am not always sure where the subliminal context of the narratives will lead, they are important. I like narratives that raise more questions than answers.”
Most recently, Treacy has partnered with Cornell University’s Center for Transformative Action, and created artist workshops in maximum security male and female prisons throughout NY and MA. Much of her most recent work is inspired by these inmates.
In addition to her showing at Madeline’s, Treacy’s work is represented at numerous galleries throughout the northeast and Canada, including, but not limited to, Odon Wagner in Toronto, Gallery 71 in New York City, and Chase Young Gallery in Boston.
