JAWBONE JAWBONE is a collaborative practice formed in 2015 by artists Nikki Katrina Carroll (b.1994) and Matthew Young (b.1993).
Their works sway between figuration and abstraction flecked with digital motifs. Working largely in a sculptural discipline, there is an objective to construct vibrant and elastic material languages. Jawbone Jawbone’s conceptual considerations can be found in their approach to material as elements to build analogies of the human body and the human mind with its interpretations of the world. A world that extends to the significance of dreams in which our abilities detach from physical possibilities.
Specifically addressing desire, companionship and communication Jawbone Jawbone place a life on their work that has a slightly uncertain but absorbing existence. Works sit silently observing in a rudimentary manner. And we stand watching them.
