Judy Pfaff: New Prints
Reception: Friday 26 January, 6-8pm | Exhibitions Dates: 26 January – 24 February 2018
“Making things puts me in touch with ideas. Al Held said I have very smart hands, that’s where I get my information, that’s how I evolve.” – Judy Pfaff
Judy Pfaff first came to Tandem Press to create prints in 1992. She has returned multiple times over the years since her first visit, and has created over 100 editions with our studio to date. Her newest body of work featured in this exhibition was inspired by a trip to India where she was enthralled by the vibrant life of the people and the rich and diverse culture she encountered. She was particularly captivated by the vivid colors and patterns of textiles she saw throughout various marketplaces during her visit. Using these textiles and the natural world for inspiration, Pfaff completed 11 new editions in our studio in February 2017. Many of the editions are multilayered and include multiple printmaking methods, hand painting, and applied colored silver leaf. The resulting artworks are a celebration of color, energy, and movement and serve as wonderful examples of Judy Pfaff’s exceptional creativity and ability to push the boundaries of contemporary printmaking.
This exhibition was made possible through support from the Anonymous Fund.
