Chul Hyun Ahn is a South Korean artist. Who creates sculptures utilizing light, color, and illusion as physical representations of his investigation of infinite space. He achieves this through the use of electrical light sources including Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), fluorescent, and black lights set between mirrors and one-way mirrors combined with housings made of plywood, cast concrete, or cast acrylic materials. The image of the work is created through the placement of lights between the two reflective surfaces, which creates the illusion of an infinitely reflecting light sculpture. He is a member of a group of young light artists including Olafur Eliasson, Ivan Navarro, Spencer Finch, and Leo Villareal. Ahn creates meditations on zen notions of the infinite and the void which distinguishes Ahn’s oeuvre from other artists working with light. Ahn’s multiple on-going sculpture series including “Forked Series” and “Tunnel Series” systematically explore the limitations of space and optics. Hilarie M. Sheets, contributing editor of ARTnews who also writes regularly for The New York Times, Art In America, and Art + Auction, said his work is “At once thrilling and ominous, it suggests a rabbit hole to another world—underwater, outer space, afterlife—or journey to the unknown, the kind of leap of faith involved in the artist’s own passage to an unfamiliar country and language.” Ahn lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland where he is represented by C. Grimaldis Gallery. For more information, do not hesitate to visit the link below.
