Trevor Young is an American painter based out of DC. He paints "non-places" - ATM's, Gas Stations, Airports, Fast Food Restaurants. Places that we take for granted but are an integral part of our world. Late at night Trevor drives around searching for these glowing islands of artificial light. He photographs them and then uses the images to paint the essence of each place. His paintings are ethereal and seem to glow with an inner light.
The piece was shot over an 18 month period so that we could capture Trevor's process from start to finish.
