Young’s canvases use an array of mixed media to rearrange the world as it is presented to him; he crosses boundaries of materials, genres, subject matter, and themes to discover life through an ever-expanding collection of images and techniques; collage, drawing, over-painting, applique, and embellishments. Found objects, linoleum fragments, magazine pictures, lace, wallpaper, spray paint, all become part of Keith’s vocabulary of painting. The paintings bridge the logical to the illogical by creating a natural synergy with the incongruous or disparate elements that find their way into his work. By critically analyzing materials and being somewhat of a material atheist, Keith has been able to define his aesthetic as an artist at a young age; frequently experimenting with techniques and objects that maintain the integrity of his aesthetic within his work. Keith’s paintings have given him a voice in his own life. His work doesn’t talk about worldly issues; but rather, solves personal struggle ultimately illustrating the phrase, the personal is political. Keith Young is colorblind, but this is not a disadvantage for him; His inability to distinguish certain colors allows him to create works with unique palettes that are among the components that make his work so compelling to viewers.
