Selected Egg Tempera on Wood Panel 1996 - 1998
"All of Young’s paintings have the glossy sheen of tempera, similar to egg white brushed onto baking bread. His dramatic reds and oranges entice the eye. Even as he strives for a kind of perfection with his complex patterns, he lets the paint crack and age; the flowers seem almost correspondent with the flaws of their background. We may never become perfect, these paintings say, but it is in our softness and our frailty that we will become whole." - Cate McQuaid, The Boston Globe, February 20, 1997.
