Contemporary Perspectives Lecture Series: Judy Pfaff
March 28, 2011
Born in London, artist Judy Pfaff creates sprawling sculptures and installations that utilize an intuitive approach coupled with intense planning. Using sculpture, paint, and architecture, Pfaff incorporates color into an organic two and three- dimensional space. Although Pfaff uses steel, fiberglass, and plaster, she also draws upon found and natural objects. Her prints, layered and extremely complex, are among the most innovative examples of contemporary printmaking today. Winner of MacArthur and Guggenheim awards and an NEA grant, Pfaff lives and works in Kingston and Tivoli, New York. Presented by the BU College of Fine Arts.
