John Young: Silent Transformations
  • Pascalle Bailey

17 Aug 2019
ARC ONE Gallery 31 Jul - 31 Aug 2019

This month a careful selection of works by artist John Young is on show in the intimate ARC ONE. Young was born in Hong Kong but is an artist frequently exhibited both locally and internationally. Young's abstract paintings appear organic and wholesome, like dappled light and blurry photographs. They are in fact the result of Young's meticulous digital reconstruction  of images translated onto linen. It is perhaps this methodical dedication in Young's practice that puts his viewers at ease. The seamless marrying of contemporary digital practice to an ancient medium is undeniably impressive.
