  • Nhat Tran: Urushi Lights
  • NhatAirport

January 27 - March 24, 2013

Nhat Tran received her BFA from the University Of Fine Arts, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Tran creates abstract urushi paintings and sculptures whose organic and geometric shapes, rich surface patterns and unusual textures reflect contemporary trends. Urishi is the Japanese term for lacquer, made from the sap of an Asian tree that is clarified to transparency and mixed with pigments to produce a variety of colors.
Tran has exhibited throughout the United States including Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Indianapolis, New York, Palm Beach, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. Her works are in the permanent collections of museums and private collections around the world including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Indiana State Museum and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.
