The Department of Art and Design is proud to present a solo exhibition by acclaimed spatial collagist, Judy Pfaff. A wildly vibrant artist in today’s contemporary art scene, Pfaff was recently featured in the PBS series, ART 21: Art in the Twenty First Century, as well as a cover artist for the academic publication, Sculpture Magazine. Pfaff’s current exhibition will be showing a collection of innovative works that include collage, drawing, and sculpture.

Judy Pfaff: The Art of Flower Arranging confronts viewers with a confusion of color as complex relations between flora, fauna, and structural systems delicately navigate the space between happenstance and precision. Formed out of easily come by, non archival materials, Pfaff turns Chinese paper lanterns, artificial flowers, bedsprings, and various papers and plastics into fragile and ephemeral works.

Pfaff received an MFA from Yale University and has since shown nationally and internationally in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Major accolades include recognition from the MacArthur Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Pfaff currently co-chairs the studio art program at Bard College in New York.

Judy Pfaff: The Art of Flower Arranging, October 21 - December 6, 2013, Duke Art Gallery, West Campus, Azusa Pacific University. 701 E. Foothill Blvd, Azusa, CA 91702.
