Judith Scott (1943-2005) was a powerful visual artist, who was isolated from outside influences through the combined impact of deafness and Down Syndrome. Very independent and self-directed, she was endlessly creative and never repeated a form or color scheme. Crafting armatures of bamboo slats or other discarded materials, she wrapped these forms with lengths of knotted cloth or yarn. Judith's work is now in some of the most prestigious art collections in the world and has captivated the interest of collectors worldwide.
Outsider: The Life and Art of Judith Scott is a documentary that transports viewers into a realm that is little seen and even less understood -- the creative and personal life of an "Outsider" artist.
