Dualistic in imagery, concept, and process, Liz Young’s work investigates themes that evoke feelings of loss and an acknowledgment of the inevitability of nature, its beauty, and decay. Liz Young is a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow and received a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design. She has exhibited her work in galleries and museums, nationally and in Europe. Her work has been supported by Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), MOCA in Los Angeles, Santa Monica Museum of Art and Hallwalls in New York, Molndal Konsthall, Sweden, Long Beach Museum, the Skirball Center, Kappa Museum, Prague, and the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department as well as commercial galleries.  Young is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and has received grants, both local, state and national awards; a City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs grant, California Arts Council grants, a Surdna Fellowship and a J. Paul Getty Fellowship.
