Robert Youds: Beautiful Beautiful Artificial Field
Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, 2007 - Art - 92 pages
Driven by a fascination with space, colour, light and abstraction, Robert Youds takes a multitude of approaches revolving around discourses on painting, sculpture, and perception. Drawing on the the exploration of luminosity as in the works of Claude Monet and Dan Flavin, and integrating the theoretical machinations of abstract expressionism, Youds has created a multi-layered body of work grounded in an architectural and three-dimensional expression of light. Through an essay and two interviews, this luminous publication documents works from the past ten years and presents new site specific installations created especially for this exhibition. Robert Youds has exhibited, most notably, at the Vancouver Art Gallery and Chicago International Art Fair. His works can be found in many public collections including that of the Art Gallery of Ontario
