Aaron Young is best known for performance art works like Greeting Card (2007), in which a team of motorcycle riders performed intricate choreography atop a plywood surface covered in seven layers of fluorescent paint and two coats of black acrylic. The resulting panels, referencing Jackson Pollock's Action painting and Robert Rauschenberg's 1951 Automobile Tire Print, combine the gestural marks of revealed paint, tire burns, and skid marks. Young's sculptures, such as spray-painted boulders and battered iron barricades recast in gold-plated cast steel, are similarly interested in the figures and imagery of rebel and urban culture.
