    Melinda Young

    Melinda Young

    Fascinated by the potential for unexpected narrative and interpretation, Melinda Young's work has a carefully considered use of colour and often a sly, subversive sense of humour. Inspired by architecture, the landscape, the social condition of the body and her everyday surroundings, Young generally works to self-set projects. Her exhibition work often takes the form of small colour studies, each having the potential to tell a range of stories. While her production work is influenced by traditional patterns and motifs observed from wallpapers, textiles and architectural details.

    Melinda completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Hons), 1999 and a Master of Visual Arts, Sydney College of the Arts, 2002. She also has a Graduate Diploma of Education, Charles Sturt University, 2006. Melinda has participated in over 90 exhibitions since 1997 with recent solo exhibitions in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. In 2008 Melinda won the inaugural JMGA, NSW Profile Award. Since 2000, she has taught jewellery at numerous organisations including the Design Centre, College of Fine Arts, Sydney College of the Arts.
