Beauty is harmony.
Two different elements, not reliant nor to subjugate by the other, radiate extraordinary beauty of its own when embraced in harmony. Seemingly chaotic nature often demonstrates its ultimate beauty from its unintended harmony at the end.
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. He is a MFA student at SAIC.
