Inspired by nature elements, Tracy Melton creates artwork out of slices of wood! Bold rings of acrylic color are painted on sanded and clear coated wood, automatically transforming it into a unique and contemporary piece of art.

The artist is a full time artist located in Knoxville and as he mentions: “My work is a expression of what I sees while hiking and camping in the Appalachian Mountains. It is based on how nature develops, grows, dies, then starts again. I like to engage in a nonverbal conversation about nature with the viewer through my paintings. They make me think abstractly about the process of life.”
