Robert Young is one of the senior artists in the Vancouver art community. He taught painting and drawing at UBC from 1982-1998, held solo exhibitions at SFU, Burnaby Art Gallery, Vancouver Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, and many more. Young’s paintings evoke a sense of wonder, they are often paintings within a painting. He imaginatively reconstruct spaces and experiences with seamlessly collaged images, often drawing details everywhere, from allegorical images from philosophy and art history, to the interior of his home. They are beautifully rendered paintings that are constantly surprising.
