Mary Young: Arias Chromatic


Opening Reception Thursday, June 20, 2019, 7-9 pm
Join us to celebrate the immense talent of oil painter Mary H. Young, whose huge, surreal canvases explore the psychodrama of being a woman in 2019. Her distinct feminism, color washes, mark making, and symbolism poise her to become a leading figural painter in the rising generation of 21st century artists, and we are honored to launch this deep exploration into her craft. Refreshments and catalogs will be served.

MARY H. YOUNG was born in Bloomfield, New Jersey in 1989, and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Her work is heavily influenced by cinema, literature, and contemporary conflicts. Creating narratives of self-exploration, Young places her exposed figures in stage-like settings, allowing the viewer to enter into a world of surreal familiarity. With thick, honest brushstrokes, viewers are quickly seduced into exploring plains of color, line and raw markings. She currently works out of her studio in East Orange, NJ.
