Debbie Young

Debbie Young is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. Having trained as a painter, Young uses various layers and mediums intuitively to create sculptural paintings which deal with time, as well as communicating ideas through authenticity, irreverent humour, a fervent curiosity for materials and objects, and absurd fictional narratives. The pieces are expansive yet met with a keen eye for details; abstract yet figurative. Like memories, the works are abstracted and assembled making for a visual experience with a tangible atmosphere. Young attempts to break convention and let the power of imagination drive her work into something which expresses the vulnerability of the human existence.
