Sydney’s Garden House, 2004, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 36 x 36 inches, gouache on board, $3240 – The color palette of this painting of a garden terrace radiate blue with interwoven colors throughout. The playful perspective and symmetry pull this piece together into a unified design and feeling. An exceptional example of Diana Young’s best characteristics as a painter.
She Evoked Their Displeasure (Theatre Series), 2010, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 8 x 10 inches, gouache on board, $850 – This work from Diana Young’s Theatre Series playfully renders the drama of the human condition. Designed with strong color forms and a more confrontational application of figure and emotion than her landscape.
Last Day of Summer, Strathglas, Rumford, Maine, 2006, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 40 x 40 inches, acrylic on canvas, $2550 – This pastoral Maine landscape illustrates the perspective of school children in a small rural Maine town as summer has come to a close. The figures are poised to play, but seem frozen. The end of play and the beginning of the rigidity of education in the very near future. Features the Strathglas Building in the far background, a landmark of Rumford, Maine.
Enter Here, 2007, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 40 x 40 inches, acrylic on canvas, $2,850 – A running joke in Maine has it that roadside businesses, particularly home-based businesses along Route 1, are famous for sending mixed messages about where the actual entrance is. Tourists and even locals are frequently tossed into confusion regarding where they are supposed to enter.
Flags are a classic antidote to this confusion, and this painting by Diana Young, uses strident iconography to signal this is THE entrance to this building. Perfect painting for an office or building environment, with the quintessential explosive palette of an original painting by Diana Young. Priced under par as an incentive for a business owner to take the splash and bring this daily explosion of joy to work.
Thor’s Garden, 2008, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 40 x 40 inches, acrylic on canvas, $3150 – Childhood as a collection of dream-organization, protection, observation, fascination and wonder. The composition is a kaleidoscope of independent zones, magical places. At the center of the constellation, the child both free to explore and insulated by the thickness of all the areas around her. At the foundation of the center, the broad shouldered strength of her mother, her most passionate protector.
The Marvelous Arbor, 2006, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 40 x 40 inches, acrylic on canvas, $3200 – As is true for many Young paintings, it’s just as much the rendered image of the landscape and things as it is the energy her paintings fervently believe they possess. This is a painting about fluid energy visualized in motion.
The Red Maple, 2007, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 36 x 36 inches, gouache on board, $3400 – The explosion of color of the maple created out of a mosaic of brushstrokes alone will make painting a joy every single day.
The Savage Stones, 2016, Diana Young, USA born 1936, 30×14 inches, acrylic on canvas, $1050 – An incredible example of Young’s ability to distill the specific character of a landscape. The Savage Stones evokes a sense of place, distant horizon, and drama. A panoramic proportion give a sense of space and depth to this rendering of the Maine coastline. Priced below market as an incentive to an early buyer. A very fine work of art for the price.
Note: Listing image has a sun highlight that is an error of the photography, not an effect of the painting.
Angry Day At Estes Head, 2002, Diana Young, American b. 1936,40 x 40 in, acrylic on canvas, $3200 – Another stunning example of Young’s ability to create an incredibly telling ‘portrait’ of landscape.
Enter Here, 2007, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 40 x 40 inches, acrylic on canvas, interior office mockup
DIANA YOUNG BIOGRAPHY
Diana Young has been painting landscapes in Maine and from travel all over the world for nearly 50 years.
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design in 1957, Young has exhibited in regional galleries and artist cooperatives across Maine. Her addition to Flood Fine Art marks, at age 81, Diana’s first foray into full time fine art representation.
Young has a small group of dedicated collectors who appreciate the color, vitality and narratives of her paintings. Some of these collectors have been collecting her work for as long as 40 years. Her sophisticated balance of form, color, and perspective is often disguised by the clear joy her work shows for the process of painting.
She continues to work today from her studio in Bangor, Maine where she lives with her husband. The paintings shown here, a selection of Diana’s strongest large works, are the very first group to be featured by Flood Fine Art since we began working with Diana in January 2018.
