DESCRIPTION

A two-person exhibition of the work of Dan Miller and Judith Scott, artists from the Creative Growth Arts Center, Oakland, CA. Both artists generated a prolific output despite cognitive and physical disabilities. Composed with materials immediately to hand, their artworks evidence an intriguing collection of dualisms: controlled and haphazard, present and absent, concrete and abstract. Miller's works on paper often comprise fragments of words that allude to his working environment, while Scott's sculptures, made over the eighteen years prior to her death in 2005, are renowned examples of fiber art that reveal an innate understanding of material, color, and line. This exhibition is curated by British artist, curator, writer, and publisher Matthew Higgs.
