Sweet and grim
Red Dot Gallery2231 J St.
Placerville-based artist Tracy Lewis is fascinated by fairy tales and nature, which is enough to indicate that her paintings will likely reflect a gentle sweetness with a blush of the disconcertingly grim. She dips her paintbrush in the delicacy of Georgia O’Keeffe’s floral and skull motifs; the defined lines, relative flatness and femininity of Alphonse Mucha’s female figures; and a palette of cool blues and pinks to create her translucent watercolor paintings. See them in person at Red Dot Gallery through January 4, in her show Cabinets and Curiosities.
