Harrington-Simpson is a 43 year old, married woman living In Turkey. Originally
from Yorkshire, England and now a Turkish citizen, she is known as both Tracey
and Eylül. Her artwork is presented to you under the pseudonym of “taiche”.
She held her first solo exhibition in June 2009 at the “Nail Çakırhan & Halet
Çambel House of Culture & Art” in Akyaka. Following her 2011 exhibition she will
be opening a permanent gallery at the Prince Kinli Hotel, Marmaris.
“Since moving to Turkey I have rediscovered my love of
painting. I want no more than being able to share my work with others and hope
they enjoy looking at my art as much as I have enjoyed putting brush to canvas.
I am a figurative artist whose predominant work focuses
on the aesthetics of the female form in a contemporary style. My work highlights
the beauty of women of all ages and cultures in a unique manner. My female form
paintings embrace the curves, contours and gentility of the female shape. I am
an active member of ‘PINK POETRY inc’. and use some of my works to support
Breast Cancer Awareness.
I also produce artwork covering a wide spectrum of other
subjects. My artwork is eclectic in style and theme and ranges from cute through
dark, from political to satire, from realist to abstract. The use of bright and
bold colour unifies my work.
You can follow my journey and be introduced to new works
and special offers via my blog at “Female Contemporary Art”
I hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I have
enjoyed creating it. If my work makes you smile it makes me smile even more!”
