Ahhi Choi

UNTITLED

2018
acrylic on canvas mounted on wooden board
28 3/4 x 24 inches

Organic, segmented forms enclose polka dots, zig-zags, and other patterning in Ahhi Choi’s drawings and paintings. Sometimes these shapes invade landscapes and architecture, or fill in the bodies of animals and sea life. Here, the black and white sections invade each other’s space. The cramped network of lines is an abstract representation of Choi’s experiences in the Western United States during his study in Los Angeles. Based in Kobe, Japan, Choi began the series while reminiscing about the expansive landscapes he saw during his time in US national parks, in contrast to the cramped streets of the Japanese city.

estimated retail value: $5,000
