Young and Brash and Abstract features eleven young abstract painters in their twenties and thirties currently working in and around New York. They originate from Spain, Japan, Korea, and England as well as the United States. Crossing ethnic, social, and economic boundaries they represent the multi-cultural diversity that is synonymous with New York City, with only the commonality of abstraction among them. Many of them draw and use line in their work. They are influenced by culture as much as by nature, memory as much as by imagination.The artists included are Henry Brown, Theresa Chong, David Brody, Christopher Francione, Anna Vilarrasa, Lisa Stefanelli, Steven Charles, Hiroshi Tachibana, Jennifer Riley, Kathleen Kucka, and Walter Biggs
