I've been doing what Twyla Tharp (in her book "The Creative Habit") calls scratching. Tharp suggests this form of investigation as important food for anyone at the beginning of a new creative endeavor. I became interested in the work of Judy Pfaff after watching an Art21 documentary on her. The above photos are of one of her installations and a drawing piece. The thing I admire most about Pfaff is her unified voice across her wide use of many mediums. She creates installations that look like drawings, and drawings that look like installations. Since my biggest focusing goal for this year is to be more "all of a piece", I think I can learn from looking at Pfaff's work.
