Andrew W. Young

Andrew W. Young (American) is an artist who lives in Manhattan and has life-long and abiding associations Downeast (Maine) and Down Cape (Cod). He is a part-time resident of Castine, Maine and has enduring connections with Truro, Cape Cod.

Young's most recent work is an outgrowth of sixteen years of research on (and “with”) the little known painter and educator, William Holst (1912-1995) who studied with Hans Hofmann in Provincetown, MA and taught and painted for over five decades. Holst's influence inspired Young's current exploration of “push and pull” and “fathoming” a surface. His collages and paintings draw on Holst’s reductive process and dialogue with American abstract expressionist painter Jack Tworkov’s “cracks of light”.
