Peter Young’s Linear Weave Paintings

Screen Shot 2013-11-26 at 11.27.23 AM

Completed between the years 1980-1983, Peter Young’s Linear Weave paintings via hyperallergic.com:

Although they were painted more than thirty years ago, years before the rise of the personal computer and the Internet, they look like they were done yesterday. They evoke the underside of carpets, circuit boards, intricate mazes with no possibility of escape, an alien language, a secret computer code or a highly evolved video game for math whizzes. They are hypnotic and subversive, enthralling and repellant. It is as if Young wanted to see how much visual information a painting could hold and yet still be porous, as if the wind could blow through it. Young’s paintings have always been about seeing rather than about being seen, not unlike their maker.
