Gaa Gallery Wellfleet is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition from artist Judy Pfaff, with the symbol-based title of × × × ÷ ÷ ÷ ☰ + + + , read as X’s and Oh’s, opening on Saturday, July 7, and on view through August 11.

For more than 40 years, Pfaff has created work that resists easy classification, spanning the disciplines of sculpture, printmaking, and painting to create expansive physical projects that have often been described as painting in space. The recipient of awards and honors including a MacArthur “genius” grant, a National Endowment for the Arts grant, and a Guggenheim Fellowship, Pfaff’s work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, and institutions worldwide.

Drawing on botany, spirituality, and art history, the artist creates deeply visual and tactile work that is marked by both sprawl and precision, by a muscular scope and intricate application. Pfaff has described her extraordinary process and varied materials as a strategy to get to “the silence, to the breath, to a sweeter sense of things.”

At Gaa Gallery Wellfleet, the artist will install wall-based installations and sculptures, featuring distorted photographic backdrops and framed works on paper.  The exhibition is a textured and multidimensional exploration of the reciprocity of material, as Pfaff merges concrete shapes and symbols with the often borderless depths of visual abstraction. 

× × × ÷ ÷ ÷ ☰ + + + , will open on Saturday, July 7, with a reception from 6-8 pm, and will remain on view through August 11.
