A prolific artist, Rich Streitmatter-Trần is an articulate entrepreneur whose lateral investigation of social and cultural phenomena makes for a critical set of artistic narratives where historical or scientific fact colorfully morphs with inspired processes of the natural world. Particularly drawn to the psychology of human behavior, its curiosities and insecurities, its weakness and excess, Streitmatter-Trần is an avid probe of cause and effect often transforming his factual and observed research into interactive interventions or carefully crafted installations that form a critical juncture between ideas of tradition, mystical superstition, cultural ritual or contemporary idiosyncrasy.
