Selected Mixed Media / Collages 2000
"Along with bits of Chinese stamps and writing, he includes excerpts from Thoreau’s journals in his own hand. For color and some tension between the foreground and background, Young uses transparent blocks of color. As might be expected, they are mostly in earth tones, except for a piece dominated by shocking blue. Young seems not so much interested in the world as drawn to his investigation of it. Unlike a landscape artist, he doesn’t want to transmit nature’s beauty as much as record his stubborn encounter with it." - Richard Maschal, The Charlotte Observer, December 10, 2000.
