Young’s practice is often collaborative in nature. Forging relationships with subculture figures such as biker gangs, skateboarders, and tattoo artists, as well as expert craftsmen, Young’s work often focuses on the process of creation as an artistic action or event, with the finished work operating both as independent pieces and documentary material of his performances. The Young and The Driftless is a ‘painting’ made on a panel of the safety glass that surrounded a gallery during a motorcycle performance where a biker sped around a room creating a ‘drawing’ on the floor. The glass was coated with layers of spray glue which collected the rubber shavings that sprayed up from the tyres as the biker rode past, creating an outlined self-portrait of the artist. Through his unorthodox way of working, Young addresses issues of cultural hierarchy to explore sustainable forms of autonomous expression, citing alternative communities and lifestyles.
