Working with appropriated photographic imagery, K Young uses cutting as subtraction. With the original context removed, the remnants are layered and spliced into unplanned arrangements, suggesting new narratives that visualise Young's unconscious thoughts, memories, and imagination. By then re-photographing the reconstructed image, the fragments return to a semblance of their original form, and so the circle is complete.

Believing that the pose reveals more than the subject, Young often depicts incomplete, faceless figures. These absent bodies appear as abstract tracings, creating new visual spaces that heighten and exaggerate the surrounding domestic scenes or landscapes that they inhabit. This interplay creates a surreal moment between reality and the imagined, disrupting the notion of truth.
