Suzy O’ Mullane is a visual artist, based in Cork, Ireland and the South of France. She has been practicing and exhibiting consistently in Dublin, London, NY, Berlin, Seattle, Miami, Toronto, and LA since 1996. Throughout her practice, she has developed and employs multiple encoded forms that have become personal allegorical references. Her work conceptualizes emotional experience, personal and societal identity, migration/ travel and memory relating to a particular identity, place, memory, or personal connections. Formally, her paintings and drawings are executed in oil and charcoal on canvas or paper. Scale oscillates between very large (maximum 7ft x 10ft) and small/intimate. Her video, collaborative and performance work supports and intersects with the 2D work, and relies on written narrative and layers of associated imagery. Her poetic prose writings are directly associated with her visual works: she has also written published critical essays for other visual artists. O’ Mullane was educated at UCC (BA English) and Crawford College of Art and Design (BA Fine Art (Hons) and Post-Grad. She is co-founder and former director for 6 years of ArtTrail Cork, Cork.

Channeling subjects such as dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space, and The Big Bang, Tran explores the shapes of nature, with the infusion of fantastical, pulsing synthetic hues. The psychedelic visuals are harvested from the place where inner-verse meets outer-verse, where optical misfires combine with a vacuum pull moving at the speed of light. Through painting, sculpture, and installation, she creates atmospheres that aim to activate. Public collections of Tran’s work include the City of Seattle's Portable Works Collection, Capital One, Vulcan Inc., 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. Tran has completed multiple special projects and installations, including work for VH1Save the Music Foundation, The Seattle Art Museum, The Brain Project Toronto, Public Art at The Aqua Art Fair Miami and Vulcan Inc. 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.
