‘Grounded in my Connection’ is the second series of images in Tracie Eaton’s creative project – ‘Emergence’. ‘Emergence’ is designed to showcase the power & beauty of women, along with emphasising Tracie Eaton’s ‘Emergence’ back into full-time creative work. Tracie used her own body as a canvas for the Emergence series…yes…she painted herself – with help from Sharon Hawker to get to those hard to reach places!
This particular body of work took 9.5hrs to complete. Tracie used liquid latex, glue, acrylic paint, body paint, moss, gold leave, twigs, glitter to achieve the desired result.
With each ‘Emergence’ piece, no body parts are edited, the intent to showcase Tracie in her raw form. The only editing that occurs with all photos is lighting, toning and effects for creative impact. The ‘Grounded in my Connection’ series of images highlights the beauty and strength of vulnerability…and of letting go.
