ABOUT JUDD FOUNDATION

An 1870 five-story cast-iron structure, 101 Spring Street is the last single-use building of its era in the SoHo Cast-Iron Historic District and remains installed as intended by Judd
ABOUT Lyora PissarRo
French artist Lyora Pissarro has been painting since the age of 4. Taught by her mother through a lineage passed down over five generations. Her work is both figurative, abstract and rooted in painting. Currently based between New York and London, Lyora completed her formal education at Hunter College in NYC, after doing her foundation year at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).
The dreamlike landscapes of Lyora Pissarro’s works have in common her embrace of her artistic heritage. Incorporating both traditional techniques and modern technology in a constant attempt to better refract the layers of aesthetic language developed over generations of artists.
Amongst her strong training in painting, Lyora was also submersed into both the art market and academic theory in art from a young age. Her experience spans from art dealing in galleries and high-end art fairs around the world, as well as working for curatorial and architectural firm Parallel in NY, a company building museums to house private art collections. Discussing art was the only subject around her dinner table growing up.
