Artist Statement: Liz Tran is a graduate in Print Art and Painting from Cornish College of the Arts. She exhibits both nationally and internationally. Channeling dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space and The Big Bang, Tran’s work explores the shapes of nature and the psychedelic colors of her imagination. Created as a form of therapy during Seattle's long, grey winters, she creates an atmosphere that is brighter, more playful, more colorful and more amiable than the world in which we exist.
Public collections of Tran’s work include the City of Seattle’s Portable Works Collection, Baer Art Center, Camac Art Centre, The El Paso Children’s Hospital, Harborview Medical Center, The King County Public Art Collection and The Child Center. She has been awarded multiple fellowships and grants, including: a Grant for Artist Projects (GAP) from Artist Trust, Clowes Fellowship for residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the Nellie Cornish Scholarship and residency at The Camac Art Centre in France, The Baer Art Center in Iceland, Jentel, Millay Colony for the Arts, and The Center for Contemporary Printmaking. She resides in Seattle, WA.
