Tran Nguyen in town working on ‘The Synapse Between Here and There’ – opening this Sat, July 16th at Thinkspace

Tran Nguyen at work on the installation of 'The Synapse Between Here and There'

Tran Nguyen arrived into Los Angeles today and wasted no time in getting over to Thinkspace to begin work with us on the installation of her upcoming show. Tran spent the afternoon painting small clusters of gold triangles throughout our gallery that act as a beautiful enhancement to her new works showcased in ‘The Synapse Between Here and There‘.

Check out Tran’s sneak peek link on our Flickr for some new shots from today’s action:

Erratic Phenomena interview Tran Nguyen

Tran Nguyen 'I Came Across A Wilting Cognition' - colored pencil and acrylic washes on Rives BFK paper - 18x25 inches (2011)

Amanda Erlanson (Erratic Phenomena editor / ‘Heroes & Villains‘ author / collector extraordinaire) recently sat down with artist Tran Nguyen as she gets ready for the opening of her new solo show, ‘The Synapse Between Here and There‘, at Thinkspace.

“I paint what I paint to target the inner depths of the psyche. I’m interested in rattling the unsettled emotions that we subconsciously keep in the very back of our minds, which in time will fester. Sooner or later, we’ll have to tend to these unresolved emotions to sustain an able mentality. This is where (I hope) my imagery can be of use.” – Tran Nguyen
