selected exhibitions

Robert Youds has expanded his engagement with the medium of painting over the past two decades to include the materiality of the designed environment, including aluminum, Plexiglas, LED and fluorescent lights and digital signs. The BC-based artist’s use of artificial light has given rise to seductive and meditative explorations of perception that he refers to as “structures” and “light paintings” while critic Barry Schwabsky has described them as “light pictorialized.”
