 Dawn Clements
New Work

Pierogi Gallery, 177 North 9th St., Brooklyn, NY

Clements’ powerful use of Sumi ink and ballpoint pen on small to large-scale paper panels remains her primary medium and scale. She often cuts and pastes the paper together to edit and compose a completed drawing, adding paper as necessary to create the desired scale. Through her active process, which is almost performative, the paper becomes distressed with folds, wrinkles, and seams.

"Through sight, sound and touch my work is always a response to environments, objects and people, but until fairly recently the responses have been largely limited to working within the confines of my living spaces in fairly solitary ways." (Clements, 2012)
