Dawn Clements Wikipedia
Dawn Clements is a contemporary artist born in Woburn, Massachusetts. Her primary mediums are sumi ink and ballpoint pen on small to large scale paper panels. In order to complete a drawing she cuts and pastes paper to edit things and achieve the desired scale. Her completed drawings show her process of editing and adding through wrinkles and folds.
Clements was born in Woburn, Massachusetts in 1958. She received her MFA from the State University of New York at Albany and her BFA from Brown University.
Clements makes large-scale drawings which explore interior spaces. She mostly makes drawings from her surroundings and time-based media. She is especially interested in the spaces that women occupy.
Clements' drawing Mrs. Jessica Drummond's (My Reputation, 1945) (2010) was featured in the 2010 Whitney Biennial. It is a drawing of the bedroom of the main character in the film My Reputation in ballpoint pen. Unlike most of her interiors, this drawing depicts the actress Barbara Stanwyck playing Jessica Drummond. The drawing is a combination of several scenes and shows different moments and camera angles in the room.
