Artist’s Project: Dawn Clements

By Dawn Clements

Esopus 8 (Spring 2007)

The Brooklyn-based artist, known for her large, all-encompassing drawings of interiors, presents just what her project’s title promises: a microcosmic view of her kitchen table, strewn with huge packs of gum, towering spools of thread, and her friend Marc Leuthold’s artwork. To preserve scale, the drawing has been printed at actual size as a five-panel fold-out, measuring 11½" x 39".

Artist Dawn Clements is represented by Pierogi Gallery in Brooklyn, where she also lives. She has exhibited her large-scale drawings of interiors widely throughout the U.S. and Europe, including the 2010 Whitney Biennial. Clements has been a guest printmaker at Princeton University and has received a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, as well as grants from the Rockefeller Foundation. Her work is in the collections of a number of institutions, including MoMA and the Whitney Museum.
