“Images precede the real to the extent that they invert the casual and logical order of the real and its reproduction”

Jean Baudrillard. 1987


Young’s work aligns with contemporary issues such as the nutritional crisis, through the guise of mis-representation in advertising. Traversing the processes of painting, sculpture and photography, a questioning of reality is presented which comments on societal issues regarding consumerism and economic instability.

The representations we face in our daily lives come under inspection through the inherent mis-representation that they present.
