The Gallery of Everything


JUDITH SCOTT (1943 - 2005) 
Selected Works

Fabric artist Judith Scott commenced a decisive and rhythmic art practice at Oakland’s Creative growth centre in 1987, after her twin sister rescued her from institutionalisation.

Self-taught and non-verbal, Scott’s soft sculptures were comprised of found materials, woven together with fabric, twine, cardboard, foam packing material and buttons. These physical explorations of tension and release ranged from small personal objects to large-scale totems.

Today they are held in important private and Museum collections worldwide, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Brooklyn museum - which hosted a solo exhibition of her work in 2014.
