ALCOHOL INK

Fine Art | Works on Paper

I paint intuitively allowing the ink to tell the story maintaining the authenticity of an experience. What largely is not represented in abstract art is not only as important as the figurative interpretation of a past lexicon but curative on so many levels. The eye receives the image but sees with a minds eye and thoughts are formed and transformed.

ELEMENTAL

2022

Taking poetic license from nature, Tran's mark making in 2022 resonates on the elemental forces that transforms ordinary moments to memorable, extraordinary, or life-changing events.

CONTEMPLATION

2021

The forced isolation resulted in a year of focused contemplation of morbidity, mortality, and the existential nature of that which lies beyond the here and now.

PERSPECTIVE

2020

When the various humanistic issues arisen from the global 2020 pandemic as well as political, racial, and social unrests in the US cannot be healed medicinally nor surgically, art becomes essential to reexamining existing biases and dogmas in a quest to calm the chaos. More than ever, Tran's aesthetic in the body of works in 2020 reflected the fluctuating duality of darkness and light of the times.

MINDSET

2019

Through the flow and ebb of ink, an alchemist's mindset transforms experiences into materiality.
