YOUNG, JOHN - Silhouettes and Polychromes

Title: Silhouettes and Polychromes
Description: Schwartz City, Melbourne Vic.,1993. Quarto hardcover, 146pp., colour and monochrome illustrations. Minor wear only; very good to near fine in like dustwrapper and professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. 'The work of John Young is exceptional in its engagement with a world of images, ranging from painting to photography and including the eccentricities of mechanically reproduced images, while at the same time being solidly based on his study of philosophy and contemporary theory of the visual arts. This book addresses fifteen years of his artistic practice, which has developed during a period of profound artistic and intellectual shifts, both in Australia and in art centres throughout the world. A major essay by Graham Coulter-Smith, together with complementary essays by Graham Forsyth, Christina Davidson and a selection of John Young's own writings, give us an appropriately multi-faceted study of an artist whose work mirrors some of the complexities and contradictions of contemporary cultural practice, and traverses traditional cultural and geographic boundaries.' - Leon Paroissien
