Tracy Felix’s paintings are an expression of his love of the western landscape. He is influenced by many of the Modernist artists working in New Mexico and Colorado from the 1920’s to now. Tracy was born in 1957 in the San Luis Valley, CO, grew up in Colorado Springs and now lives in Lakewood,Colorado. His work is in the collection of the Denver Art Museum, the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art, Denver, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, the Sangre de Christo Arts Center, Pueblo, CO. and the Anschutz Collection, Denver.
“I want my paintings to take the viewer to a hopeful and happy place. Especially right now, people need a positive experience, and I hope I can give that to them.”
“Most of my paintings are of actual locations. However, I do love to create landscapes from my imagination — the ideal landscape.”
“I am interested in the regionalist artists of the 1930s and ’40s, such as Grant Wood, Charles Bunnell, William Sanderson, Ward Lockwood and Emil Bisttram.”
