Milan Young (b. 1997), currently lives and works in Maryland, USA and is represented by Gillian Jason Gallery.
Young’s practice fluctuates in a paradoxical state between chaos and premeditation. In an abstract expressionist fashion, the element of chance imbued in the artistic gesture plays a pivotal role in her production. Yet, it also conceals a component of chromatic order and thematic investigation. Milan’s process revolves around a thorough research practice into colour theory and an exploration of different cultural, social and scientific fields, prompted by her constant endeavor to discover and represent the many facets of the world around us. Childhood trauma is also a key influence in her work, which often conveys the artist’s emotional state at the time of creation. The emerging African American artist Milan Young is an advocate for black women in the creative industry.
