Judy Pfaff was born in London in 1946 and settled in America at the age of thirteen. She received her BFA from Washington University and her MFA from Yale University. Her work can be found in the collections of 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 between two and three-dimensional work, creating art that is complex, profuse and unique. 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. http://www.judypfaff.org/
