Lot Essay

Fiber artist Judith Scott is renowned for her intricately wrapped sculptures that transform everyday found objects into cocoon-like, abstracted forms. Delicately and carefully enveloping her chosen supports with layers of yarn, cloth and other fibers, Scott’s sculptures reveal a painstakingly caring and laborious process through which she engaged with and interpreted the world around her. Born with Down Syndrome, the artist lost her hearing early in life, and artmaking became her main method of communication and her legacy.
