Ben Young‘s aquatic sculptures draw you into a world of contemplation. The New Zealand-based artist, who is known for his marine landscapes that position miniature figures in vast expanses of the translucent material, creates contemplative environments with juxtaposed minuscule representations and immensity. His pieces offer contrasting organic topographies against perfect right angles to create revealing cross-sections as they submerge your view underwater a place where we can often contemplate beauty or take solace from our troubles.
A few of Young’s sculptures can be purchased at Black Door and the Red Sea galleries. Prints are available in his shop. You might also want to explore a larger collection of works on Behance or Instagram!
