Àlex Young Artist Bio:
I consider abstract art where attention is drawn to the act of painting itself, better suited to my purposes. In the counteraction between the immediate response to material aspects of the painterly sign and their signifying function, and in the plurality of meaning or 'polysemy' leading to a multitude of possible readings and slippages of meaning. I often paint without knowing in advance where I am going, 'working out' the painting directly on the canvas, each work developing as a direct response to the build up of its component parts. In this way a more physical engagement with painting begins, where the work itself starts to determine the nature of its resolution. I perceive this process to be transformative; a quality Aristotle acknowledged in painting.
