A huge thank you to the Blackburn family for a personal sponsorship.



Amelia Tracey – Artist. Amelia Tracey is a Sydney-based artist and graduate of Sydney University’s College of the Arts, receiving her Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours – Class I) in 2014. Majoring in photomedia, Tracey became interested in the changing world of photography, and further, how technology was impacting the art world on a broader scale. Viewing the photograph as an image that is now born digitally, she perceives the contemporary photograph as one that lives as data. To preserve the personal relationship between an artist and their work, Tracey tends to “digitally paint” her images, working on them manually where methods of automation may otherwise be employed. Beyond this interest, Tracey attempts to marry the visual arts with her other love of music, which forms the underlying theme of her series of works.
