Dot Jackson is a multidisciplinary artist living in Detroit, MI. She constructs installations, sculptures and works on paper that reference the home and the body. She has exhibited internationally in the UK and Asia, and nationally in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago. Her work was shown in the Lausanne to Beijing Fiber Art Bienniale Exhibition, Daesan Museum of Art, Hangaram Art Museum, Hongik Musueum of Art and GoggleWorks Center for the Arts. She has been featured in Surface Design Journal, Broadly by VICE and The Art Blog. Most recently, Dot was awarded The Robert C. Larson Venture Award, through Cranbrook Academy of Art, to practice bookmaking at Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan, Ireland. She will graduate with her MFA in Fiber in May.
Using traditions like sewing, bricklaying, and bookbinding, she combines rough and delicate materials to play with physical and poetic tension. Her work examines the overarching relationship between our humanness and the home, all while purging meaning out of everyday material.
