Opening Reception: Friday, July 13, 5-8pm
The gallery's first new artist in 13 years, Ahn is an SAIC grad originally from Korea.
Dabin Ahn (b. 1988) is a young artist who has innate talent to conjure up the new from old, and abstraction from realism. His mind and eyes shift seamlessly between the two dimensions to three dimensions in which makes his realized vision mysteriously intriguing and beautiful.
His early self-portraits are expressed in the classic realm of 'Caravaggio' in oil on canvas, and then transcends effortlessly into the modern abstraction of 'Mondrian' style but in his own interpretation of space.
