Judy Pfaff, an unconventional artist who was a recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship, has a current exhibition at the Ameringer-McEnery-Yohe Gallery, appropriately titled 'Five Decades.'
Neither a painter nor sculptor, but an inclusive artist who uses materials and processes associated with both. An artist whose work has ranged from temporary site-specific installations to large expansive pieces that are permanently attached to a wall. Instead, she is an artist whose work slips in and out of every category, making such distinctions irrelevant.
It is a joy to discover the range of materials and cohesiveness of this work while perusing this small retrospective. Judy Pfaff's 'Five Decades' closes October 16.
The Ameringer-McEnery-Yohe Gallery is located at 525 West 22nd Street, near 10th Avenue.
