Judy Pfaff

American, 1946 -
Judy Pfaff’s multimedia work defies categorization and is inextricably bound to abstraction. Studying with the pioneering expressionist Al Held in Yale School of Art in the early 1970s, Pfaff abstained from dominant art styles such as Minimalism, and began making bold and visually active environments. She describes her approach as “a kind of editing and splicing of [a] complex freneticism.” This energy resides in Pfaff’s works on paper that weave formal and organic compositional elements, as in the woodcut Squash (1986).
