Jason Tanner Young received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2011 and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at Tyler in 2008. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Art and director of the Sculpture concentration at the University of Montevallo.
Young’s work addresses the relationship between object and memory. Often acting as a marker for experiences, objects offer a method by which to navigate by serving as internal landmarks. His hybridized forms describe personal truths, events, and behaviors.
