Exhibition of sculpture by Emily Young
in the Southwood Garden at St James’s Church until January 2018
Emily Young was born in London into a family of writers, artists, politicians and adventurers. Her grandmother was the sculptor Kathleen Scott, a colleague of Auguste Rodin and widow of the explorer Captain Scott of the Antarctic.
As a young woman, Emily Young worked primarily as a painter, having studied briefly at Chelsea School of Art, Central Saint Martins London, and Stonybrook University, New York. She left London in the late 60s, and spent the next years living and travelling in the USA, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America and China. In the early 1980s Emily Young started carving in stone, raiding quarries and stone yards for stone from all around the world. The primary objective of her stone sculpture is to bring the natural beauty and energy of stone, including its capacity to embody human consciousness, to the fore. Her sculptures have unique characters due to each individual stone’s geological history and its geographical source.
Her constant preoccupation is our troubled relationship with the planet. The Southwood Garden at St James’s Church is open every day from 9.00am to 6.00pm. The exhibition is free and unticketed.
