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.
