Melissa Young

 

Melissa likes experimenting when sculpting, new ideas and themes often evolve from conversations that she has had; her work has been described as a social commentary on life: it celebrates the life of women past and present. Her pieces can be ambiguous and it’s the eye of the beholder that decides if a piece has a nice or darker element to it, it is very dependent on how cynical the viewer is. The naming of the works is also important to Melissa, hopefully it gives an insight into the ideas behind the work and hopefully expresses some of her personality and humour.
