John Young

John Young Zerunge is a Hong Kong-born Australian artist whose painting practice reflects on the history of Western late-modernism through a bi-cultural lens. Young studied science and aesthetics at the University of Sydney before completing a degree at the Sydney College of the Arts. His practice is defined by four distinct series of paintings each driven by different philosophical and art historical concerns. Young’s recent solo exhibitions include None Living Knows, ARC ONE, Melbourne (2017); Storm Resurrection, Pearl Lam Galleries, Shanghai (2016); and John Young: The Macau Days, 10 Chancery Lane, Hong Kong (2012). Prior to this he has shown at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Anna Schwartz Gallery, Melbourne. A major survey of his work, curated by Maudie Palmer, was held at the TarraWarra Museum of Art in 2005.
