Things have been a little quiet here as I have been busy, busy in the studio working a new body of work for my upcoming solo exhibition at Studio 20/17. It is called the world is a pearl...
The premise of the work for the show is as follows:
the world is a pearl... continues Melinda Young’sfascination with the quirks of her immediate surroundings; the things and people that inhabit them. For this exhibition she has sifted through collections of domestic items and the materials in her studio – old ideas are revived, new jewellery has been born from the detritus of old work and discarded objects. The results are an intimate collection of works that are a meditation on the rhythms, repetitions and colours of daily life in the midst of Sydney’s urban sprawl.
More thoughts on the work and pictures to come. Stay tuned!
