Fascinated by the potential for unexpected narrative, Melinda Young’s work has a carefully considered use of colour and often a sly, subversive sense of humour.
“I tend to find inspiration in architecture, the landscape, the social condition of the body and my everyday surroundings, which also frequently provide materials for my work.”
Young’s practice is concerned with the re-use and re-working of found materials forming a relationship with their existing narrative. She draws on the associations between viewer, wearer and maker in order to create new meaning within each piece. Her practice is often connected with projects involving the redistribution of materials and pieces, making M/W/M a familiar but exciting challenge.
