Korean painter Hyun Jung Ahn 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 the 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’s work has been exhibited internationally in Seoul, Tuscany, Miami, San Francisco, and NYC. And she participated in residencies including Studio in Massachusett Museum of Contemporary Art and Vermont Studio Center.
Ahn currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
