STATEMENT BY THE ARTIST

Youngquist’s current paintings are a departure from her narrative-figurative work. Exploring the connection and separation of her subjects and environments, using an intuitive, improvisational approach to suggest the energy, tension, mystery, interaction and gesture in a suspended moment.  Inspired by rhythms of music and dance to depict space, discover form, shape, line and movement across the surface of the canvas.
