Selected Egg Tempera on Wood Panel 1993
"Marcel Proust finds this world of twilight consciousness, of peripheral recognition and intense emotional awareness, in the workings of memory, locating with excruciating precision the moment when physical sensation triggers recollection. He captures these moments by beginning with a sensory event that evokes the past - the scent of May blossoms, a phrase from a sonata, the taste of a madeleine soaked in tea - then developing the path that memory takes in richly textured prose. Both are, in the end, equally important to our understanding of his state of mind. Andrew Young presents similar moody images to us, with an equally elegant precision and complicated vocabulary, in these beautiful, well-crafted paintings." - Justin Spring, Artforum magazine, January 1993.
