at Axle Contemporary and Red Dot GAllery
Axle Contemporary’s presents Young's temporary life-size version of one of her intricate sculptures, using the space of the mobile gallery as her canvas. Her intricate drawings and outlandish constructions lead the viewer down a twisting path that evoke comparisons to R. Crumb, Maurice Sendak and Lewis Carroll. Young creates modern-day urban stories, a sort of urban tropical Brothers Grimm on acid, an extraterrestrial carnival with teddy bears, zombies, and a tiki lounge. Her sculptures are chock full of side splinter-ing hilarity that gives a bird’s eye view of the preposterous plight and peril of the human condition.
