Polly Apfelbaum at Frith St

Polly Apfelbaum Colour Sessions 7th November - 20th December at Frith St Gallery
b. 1955, Abington, Pennsylvania
"Colour is the key element in Polly Apfelbaum’s work, both visually and structurally. Her floorbound installations – which incorporate hundreds of pieces of velvet, hand-dyed in bold hues and often arranged in sprawling configurations that appear to be organically inspired – defy categories of art-making. Like abstract paintings that melted off the wall and formed vibrant puddles, her arrangements of irregularly shaped rounds, diamonds and ovals coalesce with the physical presence of sculpture, while maintaining painting’s sense of vibrancy."
