JOHN YOUNG

b. 1956
Lives and works Victoria.

John Young Zerunge AM (楊子榮) was born in Hong Kong and moved to Australia in 1967. Having begun his artistic activities in the 1980s with writings on conceptualism and postmodernism, Young’s continued investigation of Western late modernism prompted significant phases of work from a transcultural viewpoint with a focus on the regional development in the Asia-Pacific, including series of paintings in the last four decades: The Silhouette Paintings, The Polychrome Paintings, and The Double Ground Paintings.

In the past decade or so, he has concentrated on two main projects: The History Projects, focusing on the history of violence and benevolence, which, in later projects developed the first interpreted visual history of the Chinese in Australia since 1840, and Abstract Paintings, a reassessment of technology’s devastation to bodily skills.
