I am interested in the concept of memory. I use my work to explore how we process the passing of time, both individually and culturally.
My work explores the way our minds both hold on to memories and destroy them at the same time. I enjoy creating work that brings the viewer to that place of limbo in the memory. I want to explore both the nostalgia and the forgotten; the daily objects of life that are often neglected as well as those that remind us of cultural moments we would prefer to move past.
My work comes from a personal desire to memorialize the ephemera of the past while examining it in the context of the present. I find inspiration in family photos and aging printed materials and the feelings of loss, desire, and disgust that they evoke. I collect and catalog these items in an attempt to investigate and memorialize forgotten objects and experiences.
Amy Young was born in Mount Kisco, NY in 1982. Young works mainly in acrylic paint based mixed media collages and portraits, but also works with small scale found object sculpture. Young also explores creating wearable art objects through her costume work with various Boston Burlesque performers. Young completed a BFA at Framingham State University in 2010 with a concentration in Painting. Her work has been featured at the Jacob Edwards Library, The Mazmanian Gallery at FSU, and on shittygood.com.
