Artist and art educator Lacie Tucker will be exhibiting at Downtown Billings Alliance. Tucker will be showcasing her bold lined and expressively chromatic series inspired by plants, flowers, and still lifes. Affordable art for sale and light refreshments provided.”
Lacie Tucker was born and raised in Big Sky Country. Currently, Tucker is the art teacher for Elysian school, teaching a range of students from kindergarten to 8th grade. Fueled by her great love for education and a passion for art. Most of her studio practice is inspired by her students’ playfulness and willingness to experiment in material and technique. Typically using painting, printmaking, and installations as her vehicle of communication. She also practices and on rare occasions performs in both movement arts of belly dance and poi.
Her love of Pop Art shines through her current series as Tucker uses still lifes of flowers and plants as a jumping off point. She experiments with bold colors and thick gestural lines. The graphic style dances a line between abstract and naturalistic as well as iconic and observation. Tucker uses her bold lined and expressively chromatic series to show a new perspective on still lifes and objects around us.
When not in the studio, you can find Lacie creating lessons for her students, cooking for her husband and loved ones, taking on commissions, and traveling all while continuing to paint and dance along the way.
