Paul Pfeiffer

Paul Pfeiffer (*1966, Honolulu) lives and works in New York.

Studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and Hunter College in New York. 1997/98: Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Recipient of various grants and awards, including the Whitney Museum’s Bucksbaum Award (2000), one of the most prestigious awards for contemporary art.

One of the techniques Paul Pfeiffer employs in his sculptures, videos, and photographs is the creation of more or less obvious areas of erasure or camouflage. He uses mass-media images such as photos of film, sports, and show-business celebrities as his starting point, assured that the viewer can call up the original image from memory and will thus realize what is missing.

This is particularly evident in the motif chosen for our Collector’s Edition, an image in which Pfeiffer has digitally erased details of a filmed scene from a basketball game. In this way, he creates a new kind of presence: a presence in absence – of the protagonist and of the obvious pictorial subject.

Collector's Editions will be shipped upon receipt of payment (including postage and handling) or credit card authorization.
