Tracy Sweeney

Tracy Sweeney is a visual artist, based in Straide, Co. Mayo. Her dynamic paintings have won major awards including the prestigious Pollock Krasner Award in New York. Sweeney’s numerous international exhibitions have been met with much acclaim, particularly the 2011 Paris Biennale 109 and her group exhibition ‘Grafik Triennalen’ with Grafiska Sallskapet Galleri, opened by King Carl Gustaf of Sweden in Stockholm 2010.  

Sweeney undertakes commissions from her studios in Straide, where she is currently developing commissioned works for exhibition in the Museum of the Great Hunger, Quinnipiac University, Connecticut, USA in 2019. Working rurally allows Sweeney the space to take on large pieces, and facilitate studio visits from artists & collectors, along with travelling from Mayo to various exhibitions worldwide. Sweeney’s style is one of abstraction, highly textured pieces, reminiscent of aged surfaces, rusted metals, both urban & industrial. 

Tracy Sweeney’s paintings are held in major collections, galleries & museums throughout Ireland & Europe & the US. She is represented by galleries in Dublin & Stockholm.
