| Polly Apfelbaum
creates what she calls "fallen paintings," hybrid works of rare
beauty that exist somewhere between painting, sculpture, and installation.
Often arranged on the floor, spreading around corners in indeterminate shapes,
Apfelbaum's forms comprise intricate, nearly psychedelic layers of dyed
fabric, as if myriad smaller paintings had sprung from a cental cluster
of colorful shapes. With their stunning and eye-popping hues, the works
transform the colors of mass culture into wild, oscillating spectra bordering
on the organic.
