Carol Young

downCV

Using ceramic as her primary medium, Carol Young’s installations and sculptures transcend standard perception of the material, creating work that is unique, challenging and beautiful. Her recent investigation explores the realms of memory, history and our conceptions of paper. Carol Young’s installations evoke these subliminal memories through dialogue with the emptiness and freshness of a blank page. Drawing on an image that may refer to an ancient library composed of paper and parchment, her work conjures up the sign-filled archive of the many individual moments of experience -- unknown and hidden information that yearns to be classified, reviewed and studied.
