JOHN YOUNG
b.1956, Hong Kong. Lives and works in Australia.

Since his first exhibition in 1979, Young’s work has been shown extensively in major exhibitions both in Australia and abroad, at institutions including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and major public galleries and institutions throughout the world. His investigation of Western late modernism prompted significant phases of work from a bi-cultural viewpoint, including series of paintings in the last four decades – the Silhouette Paintings, The Polychrome Paintings, the Double Ground Paintings and the Abstract Paintings. More recently, the painter/sculptor has focused his work on transcultural humanitarianism.
Biography

Born 1956 in Hong Kong. Lives and works in Hong Kong and Melbourne where his studio based.

John Young (Young Zerunge) was born in Hong Kong and moved to Australia in 1967. His first solo exhibition was held in a hamlet in the fishing village of Rosroe, Connemara, on the west coast of Ireland. Since then he has had more than 60 solo exhibitions and over 160 group exhibitions, including representing Australia at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. In 2005/2006, a survey exhibition covering 27 years of work was held at the TarraWarra Museum of Art, Victoria.

Since the survey, Young has concentrated on projects that pay tribute to cross-cultural humanitarians. In 2009, Young presented a tapestry and drawing installation at St. Matthaus in Berlin, titled Bonhoeffer in Harlem in commemoration of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Safety Zone, a tribute to 21 foreigners who saved the lives of 300,000 citizens during the ‘Rape of Nanjing’ in 1937, was exhibited in Melbourne (2010), Brisbane (2011) and will now continues its journey to Canberra and Beijing.
