Brooklyn-based transcendental painter 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. With a mission to “find the calm within the chaos” amidst a wildly turbulent sociopolitical climate, Youngs' ongoing series of Rorschach-esque 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 abstractions 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.

Hayley Youngs is a contemporary painter and teaching artist based out of Brooklyn. She holds a BFA from Pratt Institute. Most recently, Youngs mounted a "window viewing" solo exhibition at the new Satellite Art Show headquarters and alternative art venue. Her work has been featured in group exhibitions with the Walter Wickiser Gallery, A.I.R. Gallery, Greenpoint Open Studios, and I Like Your Work. In the coming months, Youngs will exhibit new pieces at Paradice Palase and Proto Gomez Gallery.
