Trevor Young’s paintings have one foot in an old world of craft, skill and an understanding of materials and one in the more nuanced world of symbols and metaphor laden imagery. With the artist’s knowledgeable direction parking lots, planes, city light grids, off ramps and buildings under construction assume an ethereal, partially ambiguous existence, lit and infused with an accomplished light as subtle as an old master painting and as brash as an iconoclastic modern masterwork. The works of this Washington, DC based painter are at once understated and deeply moving.
