"I don't believe an artist creates beauty, but finds it and presents it to others. In my own work, I attempt to capture the slivers of transcendence in the world around me - that moment of truth and beauty when all seems to be made clearer in a wordless revelation."
Christopher Young has loved the outdoors since he was a child. With his paintings and prints he invites the viewer to reflect on the simplicity and natural order of the world.
Young has a fascination with seemingly ordinary objects - their configuration, function and design. These objects, such as bird's nests, exotic insects, or flowers, are the basis for his highly detailed and sensitive paintings.
