NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AMERINGER | McENERY | YOHE is pleased to announce Leaves of Ore II, a solo booth exhibition of
work by Tam Van Tran at The Art Show. The Art Show is organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) and held
at the Park Avenue Armory, Park Avenue at 67th Street, New York, from 6 – 10 March. The gala preview is on 5 March, 5:30 – 9:30
PM. Concurrent with Leaves of Ore II at the ADAA Art Show, Leaves of Ore, a solo exhibition of work by Tam Van Tran, remains
on view at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe, 525 West 22nd Street, through 16 March.
Tam Van Tran begins with fragments such as porcelain shards that evoke memories of ceramic jars his mother used in Vietnam
to make fish sauce or copper sheets that lift with air currents like palm fronds in the California Santa Ana winds. The fragments
include found objects, cardboard and palm leaves as well as natural materials, clay, paint and paper. The materials come
together and embody Tran’s recalled experiences of bombs floating onto shore, villagers fishing with grenades, and intermittent
evacuations. Acutely aware of himself as a Vietnamese-American absorbing both Eastern and Western cultural influences, Tran
is an artist who actively considers, explores, and expands painting and sculptural concepts.
Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and by appointment.
