Carol Young, Scrolls and Sheets

September 15 - October 22, 2016

Carol Young’s intricate sculptures are meticulously crafted to resemble curled, folded and piled sheets of parchment. The artist’s trompe-l’oeil replication of the lightness, weight, and fragility of paper confounds the viewer’s perception of material. Young’s blank pages become a kind of tabula rasa upon which the contents of personal and collective archives might appear. These delicate, evocative works investigate subliminal memory, forgotten history, and that which has not yet been spoken or said. Young’s installations call to mind an ancient printed library, laden with hidden information yearning to be classified, renewed and studied.
