The intricate compositions painted by Trang T. Le are intentionally difficult to create. That’s because, for Le, painting is not just a way to create a beautiful image, but also an emotional outlet – one in which her near-obsessive attention to line and detail serves as a psychological release.

The artist’s abstract compositions often feature meticulously rendered marks, such as carefully crafted “threads” and delicately painted Pointillist-inspired dots, over loose, densely-painted grounds. The combination of control and chaos results in works that seem frozen in mid-movement, as if Le has managed to capture the ineffable sensation of seaweed swaying underwater or a waterfall descending over a cliff. Along with such meditations on the nature, the works reference Le’s personal history, serving as a vehicle to exorcise her pain. Violence becomes a recurring theme, drawn from contemporary conflicts and the legacy of war.
