 Chul Hyun Ahn‘s “Railroad Nostalgia

 Chul Hyun Ahn‘s “Railroad Nostalgia

Ahn Chulhyun, 
 
 
Baltimore-based artist Ahn Chulhyun works with fluorescent tube lights, plywood and mirrors to create optical illusions that transcend both time and space. The artist’s rendering of space elicits contemplation into the deep abyss – exploring the physical and spiritual. Chulhyun first began his career painting in an abstract geometric style reflecting layers of paint that created an illusion of depth. His earlier print and painting concepts were further transmitted to his three-dimensional works following his studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art (2002). His recent ‘mirror drawings’ – one of a kind - show light elapsing through hand-drawn lines etched into mirrors, which remain a continuation of his previous working concept of space.
