Natural Disguise: Works 1973-1998

Judy Garfin

This book is a survey of the twenty-five-year career of Canadian artist Judy Garfin. It is an in-depth look at Garfin's fictional and self-construed universe. Her work is included in numerous public and private collections including the Canada Council Art Bank, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, and the Bronfman, Steinberg, Alcan and Bell Canada Collections. She has exhibited throughout Canada and the United States and is presently on sabbatical from Concordia University where she is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts. A major restrospective of her work was held in the fall of 1998 at the Art Gallery of Kitchener-Waterloo and at La Galerie de Bellefeuille in Montreal. The eighty colour reproductions are accompanied by critical essays by George Bogardi, Michael Mackenzie, Virginia Nixon, and Ira Robinson. The book also includes an interview with the artist by Cheryl Dudek. The introduction is by John K. Grande, author of Balance: Art and Nature. All texts are in English and French.
