Tran Nguyen was born in 1987 in Vietnam, and raised in Augusta, Georgia where she attended the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2009 Tran received a BFA in Illustration from the University and still calls Georgia home. Tran is fascinated with creating work that can be used as a sort of psycho-therapeutic support vehicle, exploring the mind's surreal dreamscapes and subconscious desires. Her delicate work is greatly inspired by the Art Nouveau period and is created with colored pencil, graphite and thin glazes of highly diluted acrylic paint all in a muted palette that perfectly showcases her romanticized subject matter.
Following her March 2010 sold out 'Nurturing The Uneased Soul' solo show, 'The Synapse Between Here and There' will feature 14 new paintings along with 3 process drawings. This exhibition will be mark Tran's largest collection of original works to date and we are honored to be able to give this show a home.
On view July 16th - August 6th in our main gallery.
