Polly Apfelbaum creates hybrid works of rare beauty that exist in a contentious, ambivalent space between painting, sculpture, and installation. Often arranged on the floor, spreading around corners in indeterminate shapes, Apfelbaum’s overall forms are comprised of intricate, nearly psychedelic layers of dyed fabric. She has been exhibiting internationally for over twenty years and her works are in many public collections including: The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The Dallas Museum of Art; LACMA, Los Angeles and the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
