Art & the environment


Anthropocene Paintings

The new reality

by David William Young

The paintings on this page by David Young reflect the life, death, beauty, brutality, exterminations, ignorance and conflicts of this new epoch that we as a species have created.

With no power to stop this  juggernaut all he can do is use his brushes to express his observations and sentiments  in the microcosm of the little valley in which he lives.

A microcosm of the whole world.

The Woodland Glade & the Hand of Man

For most of his life as an artist David Young, seduced by the utter beauty of  the living world, was compelled to express his feelings of awe (through the use of oil paint) at natures wonderful nuances of light, colour, textures and form. His love of the natural world lives in the canvas.

But it’s not enough.

As the years have passed he no longer can ignore its destruction by humans. That is why he is devoting the remainder of his painting life to work that concentrates on the Anthropocene* (see below) as a visual document for future generations to ponder.

David Young, painting from an early age, has gone on to become one of the West Countries most notable landscape & environmental artists.

It was his upbringing in a rural Devon hamlet that forged his outlook and subsequent expression through art and environmental concerns.

His freedom as a young boy to roam the woods and fields, befriending and learning from the last of the old country people, gave him an enduring love of the land and it’s soil, seasons, traditions and wildlife.

He has declined commissions for some years so he can devote himself to paintings that concern the Anthropocene.

He continues to live and paint in the hamlet, his studio surrounded by his vegetables, compost heaps and abundant wildlife which are continual satisfying distractions.
