George Young

George Young

New Paintings 19 May - 28 April

George Young paints montaged images originating from the mid C20th. His paintings involve reductions and insertions from and into the original images subverting the initial meaning and narrative, turning factual images into fantasy. The accumulation of these small changes provides a potential for new reading and understanding. Young paints in a distinctive palette of saturated colours contrasting with deep shadows in liquefied oil paint, creating an atmosphere of confused nostalgia and failed narrative

Right, Landscape with Two Men, 2007, oil on paper, 60x50cm

Recent Sculpture

7 - 24 March 2007

'My work is mainly in stone, occasionally incorporating iron and stainless steel, materials I feel are elemental, hard and uncompromising. This is fundamental to my work. Wherever the idea comes from, natural forms, heavy industry, words, politics, I strive to imbue the piece with an elegant solution. It is important to me that the viewer feels invited to touch, to feel the contrasting textures, to engage with the physical form as well as the intellectual idea. There is a continuous process of exploration, of deleloping ways to interpret ideas, to challenge the commissioner and viewer.'
