"Sharon Tracey's ekphrases effortlessly transport you to other worlds and eras, but at the same time, deeper into your self. These poems are dizzy with just the right words. They remind us that the variety and elasticity of language is a profound pleasure… Her curiosity, astute observatory powers, and formidable flare for words make this collection a rare treasure." —Lorette C. Luzajic


“In Chroma, art grows from art—organically, compellingly, and in such a way that the reader sees with a botanist’s eye and a mystic’s sense of revelation. This book draws us backward in time, but also inwards: into the mind of a modern viewer, into the lives of women painters across the centuries, and into their paintings, which are not only creations, but characters, catalysts, windows, worlds.” —Libby Maxey   


“In Chroma, Tracey has achieved a multifaceted dialogue, a meditation, a meeting place created between the artist and the poet, the art and the poem coming to fruition. Chroma examines individual works by women artists merging themes of motherhood, sisterhood, love, work, spirituality, the full spectrum of what it means to be human to be a woman and a creator” —Sarah Sousa

“What I Remember Most is Everything is a collection of poems, which, like postcards, offer a dip of a painter’s brush, songs of youth, art and memories of San Francisco, of recollection and ekphrasis, a rich banquet of details. There is celebration through those details, some religious, some pastoral, a car crash, a near miss, love and loss, departure and reunion. Throughout the poems, in Sharon Tracey’s deeply visual sensibility, color melds with words as synesthesia.”

—Lori Desrosiers


“In the opening poem of What I Remember Most is Everything, the narrator, a young woman of 21, rides westward to California, a modern pioneer. Upon arrival, she exits the liminal space of the bus, which “emits us to time.” the poet employs color as both memory and context, writes of color as a language and as possessing sound and heft, and casts color as transformational…”—Rebecca Hart Olander
