Zoe Young is an Australian artist who lives in NSW with her husband and two kids. her paintings are marked by her eclectic use of colour and sharp eye for unique landscape and still-life compositions.

Young’s latest series of paintings are a collage of time; coalesced with childhood memories, everyday interactions and accidental fascinations – a book, an heirloom, a ripe plum from the garden. This body of work reveals the significance that objects, both collected and inherited, hold for the artist. For instance, Young incorporates studies of artworks that have resonated with her since childhood, such as Benjamin Edwin Minns’ etching Aboriginal mother & child (1925) which features in Ode to Minns (2017). In this way, she pays homage to her Grandfather’s art collection and enters into a dialogue with these artists across time and space.

her new show Space Between Hours opens tomorrow at Piermarq in Sydney.

  1. What I love about this post is that you’re waaaaay over there in South Africa, introducing me to a wonderful Australian artist, having a solo exhibition in a gallery at Paddington, which is less than 2 k’s from where I live. Thank you
