Determination - By Melissa Young

Based in Wellington, Melissa Young creates striking bronze sculptures which make powerful statement pieces for the home or office. 'Determination' has an edition size of 20, and is part of a range that she named, 'Commitment, Determination, Dedication, and Trust'.

"This range started from the piece 'Girls', that I made in 2014, which is homage to when my daughter was doing competitive gymnastics. I can't do handstands now, and actually I don't even think I could when I was Tori's age, especially not with the precision and control that she developed through gymnastics. The long hours of training were huge. By the time she retired at the ripe old age of 7, she was practicing eight hours a week at her gymnastics club. These pieces are a tribute to the mental and physical attributes that a gymnast needs: commitment, determination, dedication and trust."
