Next artist: Pere Llobera >

 George Young collects then redepicts images of cultural ephemera, simplifying his sources into thinly washed paintings that are estranged from their previous contexts and coupled with precise, formal structures that often resemble stretchers or dislocated frames.

Responding to and extending the assembled paintings, Young conceives of these forms as a kind of punctuation: the dashes, colons and parentheses of a carefully structured visual phrase.
