On the Artist

Judy Pfaff
Judy Pfaff is an English-born American artist best known for her installation work.  Dubbed a “a collagist in space” by Roberta Smith of the New York Times, Pfaff has been a pioneer of site-specific art installation since the 1970s.  She uses steel, fiberglass, and plaster as well as salvaged signage and naturalelements such as tree roots in her work.  The results are sprawling sculptures, assemblages, and installations that weave landscape, architecture, and color into a tense yet organic whole.

Pfaff received her M.F.A. from Yale in 1973 and has received numerous awards including the Barnett & Annalee Newman Foundation Award, the McArthur Fellowship Genius Award, two National Endowments for the Arts, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.  Pfaff currently co- chairs the Studio Arts Program at Bard College, and lives and works in Kingston and Tivoli, New York.  Her work is included in prestigious museum collections around the country including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
