Artist Spotlight: Dana Younger

1-Legends-of-the-Lone-Ranger-Part-I-Andrew-JacksonDana Younger focuses his artwork on the cost of Western expansion–what is sacrificed in the pursuit of Manifest Destiny?  He juxtaposes established Western conventions with historical figures to spotlight the damage associated with westward expansion.      His sculptural processes of traditional bas-relief computer aided machining, and toy manufacturing all contribute to the dialogue.

Younger will be featured in the UAG’s summer exhibition “Re:Visioning the West,” opening May 21st.
