Blurring the boundaries between painting, drawing, and sculpture, Tam Van Tran’s works incorporate unconventional materials that shift between the organic and the industrial becoming abstract compositions that reference both natural and imagined worlds. He often combines natural substances such as chlorophyll, beet juice, and spirulina with office supplies, such as hole punches and staples, giving curving dimension to his highly detailed large-scale drawings. Based in Los Angeles, Tran was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial and has had solo exhibitions at Cohan and Leslie, New York, and the Knoxville Museum of Art, Tennessee. He’s featured in a solo exhibition at Anthony Meier Fine Art in San Francisco opening Friday, November 17.
