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. The artist was extremely close to her twin sister, and many of her works feature pairs or variations on twin-like themes, perhaps drawing on an intimacy developed in the womb and through their lives. Born with Down Syndrome, the artist lost her hearing early in life, and artmaking became her main method of communication and lasting legacy. She worked at the Creative Growth Art Center, Oakland, California, from 1987 until her death in 2005.
