Metro Theatre is thrilled to announce a new and very exciting project.
We are working in tandem with artist Tracy-Lynn Chernaske to create and find the beauty in recycling through ABSTRACT ARTWORK.
Painting is a big part of theatre productions. So what happens at the end of the season with all the little bits and pieces from a whole season (or two…or three) of painting materials? If you are the creative and talented Tracy-Lynn, the answer is to explore ARTFUL THEATRE by producing Original and Innovative Abstract Paintings.
Using 100% recycled materials from the last few seasons of Metro’s shows Tracy-Lynn is already busy at the Scene Shop making sure nothing in the paint department is left behind or goes to waste
During the regular theatre season at Metro, Tracy-Lynn is our Scenic Painter. She has received many accolades for her theatre work. What you may not have realized, is that she is also a practicing fine artist.
Tracy-Lynn consistently strives to challenge herself in finding new work using various process art techniques. She is a self-claimed cross between a Painterly, Impressionistic and Graphic Style Painter who enjoys exploring the relationships of the push and pull of shades, texture and color. Tracy-Lynn typically works with bold strokes and in quick-fire, intense time periods which makes for fascinating and multilayer pieces that lull the viewer into visualizing an artificial simplicity.
Over the summer, we will be featuring time-lapsed video of Tracy-Lynn’s artistic process as well as some of the imaginative images of this ARTFUL THEATRE ~ ABSTRACT PROVISION. Check back often for updates.
Metro Theatre is a non-profit theatre company, dedicated to promoting and developing theatre arts. 2018-2019 is our 56th continuous season of bringing laughter, intrigue and surprise to live audiences.
Tracy-Lynn Chernaske’s paintings are heavily influenced by her diverse background of experience and training. The vast majority of experience comes from theatrical scenic painting.
Tracy-Lynn is a self-claimed cross between a Painterly, Impressionistic and Graphic Style Painter. She prefers working with artist’s acrylics, latex house paints and found materials. Recently she has also taken up body painting and photography.
Ms. Chernaske typically works with bold strokes, textures and in quick-fire, intense time periods. Recent work includes a completed series of female nudes that focused on embracing the concept that body and mind are continually shifting and changing.
Currently Tracy-Lynn is working on a series of non-connected abstract pieces that are made from 100% recycled materials from Metro Theatre’s Scene Shop. These Original Abstract Paintings will explore passionate colors and textures.
