In her solo exhibition at The Korea Society, Seongmin Ahn presents a series of paintings and wall installations that fuses her insight in the relativity of perception with a deep regard for traditional Korean art, especially minhwa–folk painting. In her work, Ahn begins with traditional forms and themes, which she then extends into multi-disciplinary and multi-media practices by adopting science, technology, and multiple cognitive models.

For Ahn, whose work reads as equally playful and earnest, bringing light to a dark room at the touch of a finger is a wondrously apt metaphor for the role of art in our lives.
