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 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 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 experience 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.
