Telfair Museums’ 2022 PULSE Art + Technology Festival features a solo exhibition by Baltimore-based artist Chul-Hyun Ahn (Korean, b. 1971) whose light boxes made from LEDs, one-way mirrors, and sculptural materials create the suggestion of infinite space, whether the illusion of a railroad track curving into the darkness or geometric abstractions in vibrant color. Ahn’s precise and mesmerizing works also reflect the influence of Zen Buddhism and providing otherworldly experiences that connect to the spiritual as well as the language and history of abstraction.
