Tucker’s work centers on themes involving urban life including development and gentrification, as well as neglect and deterioration. The artist utilizes the city streets both as her studio and her exhibition space. Playing on the concept of the placebo effect, where healing occurs naturally when simulated by a false treatment, the artist’s larger body of work is titled Sugar Pill Project.
