It seems that nearly everyone who's seen internationally known installation artist Judy Pfaff's latest solo show at Robischon Gallery has come away feeling revitalized -- so much so that the exhibit was held over until the end of December. That created the opportunity for Pfaff to drop by the gallery for an artist talk tonight, presented in conjunction with the Denver Art Museum.
The show's 24 sculptures and wall assemblages were influenced by Pfaff's travels in Asia and, more specifically, the Sanskrit Jakata Tales, stories of Buddha's changing forms and iterations. Some are backlit with a fluorescence that shines through translucent forms; others layer a flood of symbols and materials in delicate symbiosis.
Pfaff will shed light on the mysteries behind these lovely works beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the gallery; for information visit Robischon online or call 303-298-7788.
