Art:21-Romance

Artists explore the roles that intuition, emotion, fantasy, and escapism play in contemporary art.

Balancing intense planning with improvisational decision-making, Judy Pfaff creates exuberant, sprawling sculptures and installations that weave landscape, architecture, and synthetic color into a tense yet organic whole. A pioneer of installation art in the 1970s, Pfaff synthesizes sculpture, painting, and architecture into dynamic environments in which space seems to expand and collapse, fluctuating between two and three dimensions.

Judy Pfaff is featured in the Season 4 episode "Romance" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century". [she's 26 minutes into the episode.]
