Since the mid-nineties, Apfelbaum's work has been widely discussed within the context of abstract painting. She uses such sensuous material as velvet, cotton, and fabric dye, and crepe paper. By draping textiles languorously from pins or arranging them in lavish piles on the floor, she gives rise to works at once fragile, ingenious, and graceful.

In recent years, Polly Apfelbaum s large-format floor works have become her trademark: hundreds of small, hand-cut pieces of crushed stretch velvet treated with fabric dye are painstakingly arranged in waves of color on the floor. Their circular or elliptical patterns produce a vertiginous effect. I wanted the work to be as sexy and hallucinogenic as possible, says Polly Apfelbaum.

Apfelbaum's work invites a multitude of interpretations that range from high to popular culture, revealing allusions to color field painting, minimalist sculpture, Matisse's paper cutouts, Andy Warhol, feminist art, and art and crafts. The titles of her works often refer to pop songs; the artist is interested in the emotional, intuitively and at the same time tightly structured content of music.

In the midst of her exuberant eclecticism and the manifold references evident in her work, structure and austere form are clearly dominant as well; her sculptures are ingeniously balanced. Her tie to folk art is primarily a formal one; she derives from it a degree of economy, rhythm, and logic. Polly Apfelbaum is searching for beauty; her works are visually appealing.

Polly Apfelbaum, born in 1955 in Abbington, PA, lives in New York.

Gallery Information

The Galerie nächst St. Stephan, which Rosemarie Schwarzwälder has directed since 1978, focuses on Minimal Art, Concept Art and abstract painting, as well as photography and videos. Issues of the development of art, international cultural comparisons and the validity of aesthetic criteria have been discussed in gallery's symposia and addressed in numerous publications. Rosemarie Schwarzwälder provides consulting services for building up and adding to public and private collections. Many years of cooperative work with internationally renowned artists such as Bernard Frize, Helmut Federle, Katharina Grosse, Imi Knoebel and Günter Umberg, and close contact with collectors and museums have made the gallery one of the leading addresses in the international art scene.
