Hayley Youngs creates lavish geometric paintings, alluding to a realm beyond the physical world, both philosophically and spiritually. Employing a visual language of esoteric shapes and curvilinear motifs, she navigates a mystical pictorial space, governed by symmetry, color, and intuitive precision as well as the inclusion of constructed landscapes or fragments of nature from memories of her travels. With a mission to “find the calm within the chaos” amidst a wildly turbulent sociopolitical climate, Youngs' ongoing series of recent works metaphorize humanity's journey into the unknown and the societal transformation taking shape in our modern historical moment. Drawing stylistic influence from Art Deco, Psychedelia, and Visionary art traditions, these kaleidoscopic-esque paintings are a timely reflection of the universal desire for balance and positivity, serving as a safe haven for comfort, collective meditation, introspection, and re-orientation.
