Alice Pixley Young’s body of work examines the disruption of climate change, man-made disasters, and the evolution of technology on our (and as our) landscape. Citing art historical roots from the Hudson River School to Land Arts, her works explore the interrelationship of landscape, environment and technology. Primarily focusing on multimedia installation, she uses video and light projected through glass objects and kinetic sculptures to create immersive, moving shadow-drawings. Ongoing project, Lightgeist, won Best in Show at Richmond, VA’s contemporary light-based festival, InLight Richmond at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts/1708 Gallery. Young’s work has been exhibited widely, most recently at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art/The Momentary (Bentonville, AR), Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (New York, NY), The Taft Museum of Art (Cincinnati, OH), and London Print Studio (London, UK). She is a recipient of grants from the Ohio Arts Council, Surdna Foundation, Summerfair Cincinnati, and the National Endowment for the Arts, and her work has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, Hyperallergic, Condé Nast Traveler, and others. Young received her MFA at the University of Maryland. She is affiliated with A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
