Born in Kampot, Cambodia, in 1969, Sokquon Tran has exhibited extensively since the late 80s and has been a finalist in the Woollahra Sculpture Prize and the Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. His work is held in numerous private and corporate collections throughout Australia, Germany, Malaysia, USA, Norway, Sweden and China.
A painter in the romantic tradition, Tran’s work possess all the elements of the intangible which characterised the visionary works of artists such as Delacroix and inspired thinkers including Nietsche and musicians, Wagner and Schubert. For the first time throughout history, the Romantics sought to portray the essence of spirituality, or ‘God’, without referring directly to religious iconography. Sokquon Tran’s sublime landscapes reveal to us a beauty and mystery which speak to us of a greater power than ourselves, transcending place and portraying an echo and a visceral response to it. The exact location is of lesser significance than the sense of sheer wonder and of the magic of the land itself. His worlds are at once real and imagined, and are places of refuge and of reflection.
