Multi-disciplinary artists are able to bring fresh perspectives to what can feel like tired art forms; take the work of Tracie Cheng as the perfect example. Although she focuses on ethereal and abstract elements in her paintings, they are grounded in an architectural discipline since that happens to be Tracie Cheng's studied trade. With this in mind, the use of geometric lines in juxtaposition with more fluid forms makes total sense.

Tracie Cheng nevertheless isn't afraid to step outside of the lines to create imagery that is full of creativity and imagination. Based in New Haven, Connecticut, she writes, "I want to express a richness that cannot be seen and only experienced, so as to draw one in with questions of knowing more. I want a calm understanding to be felt, despite what you may never know. I want to find more possibility in the intangible, and allow for it to come into its own."
