 Past Exhibition

 Polly Apfelbaum
  June 4–September 5, 2004
  back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

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.
