Hayley Youngs is a painter and teaching artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She holds a BFA from Pratt Institute and her art has been included in group shows and benefits at the Walter Wickiser Gallery, The Rubelle and Norman Schafler Gallery, Sears-Peyton Gallery, Fischbach Gallery, and A.I.R. Gallery in NYC and Greenpoint Open Studios.

Hayley creates her works spontaneously, allowing her moods to carry the paintbrush around the canvas. Her forms and colors conjure their own counterparts, and in the process Youngs quotes from a multitude of dialects like abstract expressionism and psychadelia. Her loose methods produce surprisingly precise, playful composites whose Rorschach-like result allows viewers to intuit their own symbols and meanings.  

“... color awakens a physical sensation, which undoubtedly works upon the soul.” - Wassily Kandinsky
