Olsen Gallery | carolineberesford.com

Olsen Gallery has been featured in Caroline Beresfords blog reviewing Sydney contemporary. Titled ‘Walking the line between Art and Design’, a section is dedicated to Olsens solo exhibition of John Youngs works.

Read the post below:

“The Olsen Gallery presented an exquisite solo exhibition of one of their most dynamic artists John Young.

Through amalgamating digital imagery and traditional painting techniques, Young’s work explores visuality and the concerns of the contemporary body in a digital age.

John Young is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists, noted for his discursive and deeply scholarly approach that combines innovative painterly practice with traditional technical rigour.

The composition of shape and playful use of colour in his works exhibited at the show are a dream for interior designers wanting to creative soulful, memorable and unique interior spaces.”
