Liz Young is interested in the body, the human condition and our relationship to nature. Young uses materials, often recycled, that evoke history, memory and nostalgia. In the two works Eagle and Deer, Young has covered figures of animals in nude colored fabric that simulates our own skin. By creating an extra skin for these animals Young refers to the human desire to modify, often drastically, our bodies and attempt to avoid aging.
Gift of Laurence A. Rickels
