In his artworks John Young combines painting on canvas with largesized digital prints of pre-founded pictures. He multiplies and fragments images and information, he mates abstraction with photorealism, conflates Western and East-Asian submittals to seperate them again. As a Chinese, born and grown up in Hong Kong, and an Australian based artist today, he reflects 'between' worlds of migrants and denies the assimilation which is postulated in Autralia as well as in Europe. Based on this context the new works of the painter can be seen as a comment on the Western curatorial-scene. Those are requiring assimilation likewise an 'Asian- Chinese authenticity'.
