Korean painter and sculptor Hyun Jung Ahn (b. 1986) creates work that investigates personal connection through enigmatic, abstract forms. Her process begins with a visual diary that draws from emotional states, emphasizing capsules of time that crystalize feelings and words with color and form. Ahn earned a first MFA from Duk-Sung Women’s University, Seoul in 2013 before she received her second MFA in painting and drawing from Pratt Institute in 2017. Ahn currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
