Scott, Joyce

Joyce Scott

Born and raised in Baltimore, Scott is a descendant of African-Americans, Native Americans, and Scots. Three generations of storytellers, quilters, basket makers, and wood, metal, and clay workers inspire her artwork. Her works can be found in permanent collections throughout the United States including the Racine Art Museum.

Scott’s exuberant beaded sculptural forms and neckpieces are provocative and confrontational, addressing contentious political and social issues such as gender, race, and class struggle. This abstract necklace is in shades of blue and violet.
