Christopher Young was born in small-town New Zealand in the mid-seventies. After finishing his studies he moved to Germany in 1996 before settling in Perth, Western Australia in 2002.
Isolation is a recurring theme in his life and work – the remoteness of growing up in semi-rural New Zealand, the loneliness of living in Germany as a poor German speaker and lately the geographic and ideological seclusion of life in the purportedly most isolated city in the world, Perth, have all coloured his artistic practice.
Context, coding in images and a lack of a personal cultural library have been central themes explored in his work.
He majored in Photography with a Fine Art bias and exhibits on a regular basis in Perth, Western Australia where he now lives with his artist wife. Christopher supports his practice by working in the Graphic Design and Print industries.
