The Patchogue Arts Council is proud to present Decadence, a solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Courtney Young. The exhibition is curated by Jay Schuck and is on view at Roast Coffee & Tea Trading Co., 41 E. Main St., Patchogue, NY 11772, from January 22 to March 5, 2017 with a reception on Sunday, February 5, from 2 – 4 PM. The reception is free and open to the public.
Choosing subject matter that is rich in color and texture, Young takes her photographic references and brings them into the studio where she crafts inspiring compositions that serve as faithful representations of their real-world counterparts. Young strives to recreate the memories of her favorite childhood foods, while evoking hunger in others. Sections of her paintings are consciously blurred, which consequentially sharpens other aspects of her works. This conscious blurring, for the artist, creates a sense of emphasis while also conveying a loss of clarity that often occurs if one is an emotional eater and uses food to fill a void.
Courtney Young is a fine artist from Bay Shore, NY. She received her MA in Art Education from Adelphi University and is currently an MFA Candidate at the New Hampshire Institute of Art. Her artwork has been exhibited across Long Island with select exhibitions at the Heckscher Museum of Art, Islip Art Museum, and the Anthony Giordano Gallery. Young is an active member of the Pastel Society of America, the Art League of Long Island, and the Patchogue Arts Council.
