“My work begins with the act of collecting, both in the tangible sense and also in memory. My studio houses well loved fabrics, burnt ironing board covers, found and rusted metals, assorted tree fragments, vintage hand-written journals, photographs and reclaimed canvases.”
Boston-based Dawn Southworth is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she focused on textiles and sculpture. Her passion for fabric and fibers has evolved into a sophisticated and innovative approach to construction. Laden with symbols and metaphor, her work blends found objects, drawing, sewing, and pyrography. The resulting art is emotionally charged and conceptually stimulating.
She has been awarded artist fellowships from the Massachusetts Cultural Council in both painting and drawing and is a recipient of a NEA/NEFA Fellowship in sculpture. She is also represented in museums and public and private collections including the Addison Gallery of American Art, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Fidelity, Wellington Management and the Boston Public Library.
