On view by Doug Young are three artworks: reverse paintings on glass, rendered with automotive paints and ensconced in monumental, graphite-finished wooden frames. The result confronts you unabashedly. These fictions of place and fantasies of youth are a marvel and a wonderment. Captivating in their graphic qualities, starkly and consciously superficial, they attract and yet repel. You're not quite able to get your footing nor fully "know" what you're looking at....or through. Quirky and irregular, these works suggest how striving for perfection falls short and the fallibility of humans endures.
