“I speak with my paintings. It's compressed words from my mind, and they have their own weight and temperature. My practice is to express them with colors and abstract shapes.” — Hyun Jung Ahn

About the Artist

File 83230

Hyun Jung Ahn (b.1986) is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist, from Seoul, South Korea. Through her work, she investigates enigmatic abstract forms which she references as “shapes of mind”. She begins by drawing from her visual diary which captures feelings, personal connections and emotional states of being. She then translates these notions into minimalistic drawing, painting and sculpture.
