About this solo exhibit


Atrium is currently featuring our Spring exhibition "Judy Pfaff: NewPrints." This extensive solo exhibition by the internationally renowned artist Judy Pfaff includes all new work inspired by her recent travels throughout India, where she was particularly influenced by the brightly colored and intricately patterned Katha blankets she encountered there. Enthralled by the rich, diverse culture and vibrant life of the people, the colorful contrasts and intricate patterns she experienced are luminously presented in these graceful compositions. Imagery flows and energy abounds through these new prints, where Pfaff's handling of color, manipulation of images, layered lines, and organic shapes echo throughout. Here, Pfaff incorporates hand painted inks and dyes and her signature sensitive layering of printed surfaces to create an inspirational fusion of complex composition with subtle beauty and reverence.

Pfaff is a graduate of Washington University (BFA) and Yale University (MFA). Throughout her distinguished career she has consistently received important recognition through prestigious awards and significant museum exhibitions and acquisitions. Her work resides in the permanent collections of Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Soonhwa Art and Culture Foundation, Seoul Korea, Albright Knox Gallery and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington DC. Her recent prints were created through association with the acclaimed atelier Tandem Press.  

The exhibition runs through June 2. For more information and images please contact the gallery.
