About the Artists:
Jock Young is a landscape painter whose main interest is the sea, or more accurately, the interface between the sea and land. His paintings focus is on the dynamic between the movement of the sea and the stillness of the land, and in which he tries to capture a kind of personality of the location. But in the end it is all about the light, which is a distinctive quality of the Tasmanian landscape.
Young prefers painting plein air, and because of this, travels widely here and elsewhere. He has completed residencies in France, and on mainland Australia. He has had over twenty solo shows and is represented in a number of public and private collections.
