PRESS RELEASE: Michael Young - Updrafts

June 11, 2017 - Holly Johnson Gallery

Holly Johnson Gallery is pleased to introduce, Michael Young: Updrafts, an exhibition of new paintings by the Austin-based artist. An opening reception will be held Saturday, June 24 from 5-8 pm. This exhibition marks the artists’ first show with the Dallas gallery and it continues through October 7. 

Over the last 30 years, Michael Young has developed a diverse and kaleidoscopic body of abstract geometric paintings, drawings and installations. Central to his work is an emphasis on facture, an attunement to the methodologies of making or constructing his paintings. His painting procedures are adapted from different sources such as geology, scientific documentation and architectural production, and result from the use of specific materials to construct the surfaces.

REVIEW: William Betts in

May 30, 2017 - Todd Camplin

Achieving the machine made look has been an obsession with many artists since Warhol and Lichtenstein burst onto the scene. Lichtenstein used projectors to draw many of his paintings. He also painted his signature dots to create simplified images that reflect a printing technology used in comic books and advertising. Warhol used the machine like process of serigraph printing to push the ink onto canvas or paper. Even today you can look at a poured painting by Peter Zimmerman or the late work of Scott Barber and you feel that the paintings were made with machine rather than by hand...

PRESS RELEASE: Matthew Cusick in "What Lies Beneath" at OJAC

February 18, 2017 - Patrick Kelly, Old Jail Art Center

What Lies Beneath presents the work of nine contemporary artists who utilize the mediums of collage, montage (photographs or film), and assemblage (found objects). Mass-produced print imagery and utilitarian objects--fueled by voracious consumerism--have created an endless supply of source materials for these artists in their productions of collages, montages, and assemblages. Though diverse in appearance, all of the works in this exhibition share a commonality of providing layered meanings, consciously or sub-consciously, embedded by the artists. The full potential of each work is revealed by the viewers' efforts to discover "what lies beneath" ...
