An Entangled World: The Art of Judith Scott
& collect
Judith Scott (May 1, 1943 – March 15, 2005) was a pioneering American sculptor and textile artist. Judith was found to be "ineducable," not even qualified for the class for children with learning disabilities. Her deafness unrecognized, she was thought to be profoundly retarded. On medical advice, her parents placed Judith in the Columbus State Institution on October 18, 1950, where she was locked away for 35 years. In 1985, Joyce Scott became her sister’s legal guardian. Judith moved to California, and in 1987, Judith Scott started going to the Creative Growth Art Center. Judith casually observed a fiber art class, and using the materials to hand, spontaneously invented her own form of artistic expression. While other students were stitching, she was sculpting. Taking found objects she would wrap them in carefully selected colored yarns to create sculptures. First making a skeletal armature from rigid objects bound together, these would then by covered by colored cloths and yarns, woven, wrapped and tied. Lacking language, Judith spoke to the world through her sculptures. Her art is held in the permanent collections of Art Brut Connaissance & Diffusion Collection (Paris and Prague), Museum of Modern Art (Manhattan, New York), Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA, Museum of American Folk Art (Manhattan, New York), Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art (Chicago, Illinois), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, The Oakland Museum, Oakland, CA. L’Aracine Musee D’Art Brut (Paris, France), Collection de l'art brut (Lausanne, Switzerland), and the American Visionary Art Museum (Baltimore, Maryland). Judith Scott died of natural causes at her sister's home in Dutch Flat, California, at the age of 61.
