Judy Pfaff is a British-born American artist known for her ambitious installation works which combine the media of sculpture, painting, and architectural alterations to create airy and lyrically tangled environments. Pfaff is considered an early participant in the Process Art movement of the mid-1960s along with Lynda Benglis, Bruce Nauman , and Richard Serra. Her unique style is informed by a variety of disciplines, including mapmaking, medical illustration, botany, physics, zoology, and set design for theater. The artist was born in 1946 in London, United Kingdom and moved to the United States at the age of 13. She received her BFA from Washington University in St. Louis and later her MFA from the Yale University School of Art, where she studied under the influential American abstract painter Al Held. As her career gained momentum, Pfaff was awarded both the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellowship (2004) and a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship (1983). Today, Pfaff lives and works in New York, NY. Her works are in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
