Judy Pfaff  

Judy Pfaff was born in London in 1946 and later settled in America at the age of thirteen. She received her B.F.A. from Washington University and her M.F.A. from Yale University. Her innovative work has brought her wide acclaim from galleries and museums throughout the United States, Europe, and the Far East. Her work can be found in such prestigious collections as the Detroit Institute of Art; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

From the beginning of her career in the 1970s, Judy Pfaff has worked with a wide and unusual range of materials and moves back and forth easily between two and three-dimensional work, creating art that is complex, profuse and unique.  These dynamic, exuberant, large-scale works incorporate many different media.  While primarily a sculptor, her concepts are expressed in equal power in her prints.  Judy Pfaff's sculptures, drawings and prints have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. She has been described as a "collagist in space." Pfaff was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2004.

Judy’s prints at Tandem Press range from small exquisitely complicated prints to large woodblocks, that also incorporate digital, hand-painting and collaged cut-outs. Like her large-scale installations her prints have a three-dimensional presence and flowing quality with multiple circles, lines and organic shapes echoing throughout each image. To bring the overall compositions together prints are often completed with hand applied paints, fabric dyes, and multiple layering.
