I feel a part of it – works by Tara Tran

May 23 @ 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

I feel a part of it
works by Tara Tran
HP Satellite Gallery 
May 23rd – July 21st

Reception : Sunday June 25th, 3-5pm


inside is a weak new world made for human bodies, there has to be a right way and there has to be a wrong way and nothing is meant to last. 
everything must be obliterated and molded or it will not fit .
inside, all bodies must justify their right to life. you watch a thousand deaths make way for nothing at all.
in a world of human creation, you are complicit in its construction. it is malleable and empty. your heart is empty, your soul is empty. 

you long for fullness constructed by time beyond your comprehension.
you get a futile recreation of infinite detail.  
try to fill a big hole just inside your body.
your arm against my chest is like the sun on my skin.
long for a full world or whatever soothes.

outside there is love and indifference for everything.
everything was meant to live and die and live again.
outside is a place that holds all bodies the same and there are no holes to fill.


Tara Tran likes to take photos, paint, draw, pluck stringed instruments, cook meals for their loved ones, walk around outside and learn new things. Raised in Vegas and residing in Reno, they have been shaped by the mountains, the valleys, and the people who live within them.

Tara studied Painting and Anthropology at UNR and is inspired by art and music’s ability to communicate emotion and thoughts they are unable to fully describe. In their visual art, they often use human and natural forms to depict the attempt to soothe an intimate and universal state of underlying fear and discomfort.
