In collaboration with the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts, Tarble Arts Center will present an exhibition of work by Baltimore based artist Chul Hyun Ahn called Reaching into Infinity: Chul Hyun Ahn. Ahn uses light, color and illusion to create sculptures that serve as explorations of infinite space. His curiosity about the boundaries between the conscious and unconscious inspire him to build contemplative environments that defy spatial planes. Ahn’s sculptures urge viewers to ponder the limitlessness of the human capacity for metaphysical growth.
Chul Hyun Ahn was born in Busan, South Korea, Ahn moved to the U.S. in 1997 to study at Eastern Michigan University before receiving a Master of Fine Arts from the Mount Royal School at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore in 2002. Since 2003 Chul Hyun Ahn has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally, and his work can be found in numerous private and public collections such as the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, Delaware, the Hearst Foundation Collection in New York, the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse in Miami, Florida, the McDonald’s Corporation in Washington, DC and the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, California.
