Biography  
Polly Apfelbaum


An artist of wide-ranging styles from Pop Art to Minimalism, Polly Apfelbaum has been exhibiting in New York since the early 1980s. Many of her installations are dyed fabric laid on the floor, wall works with strips of velvet applied to bed sheets or collages of cut-up photographs and cloth. Her subjects deal with the relativity of time, feminist issues, and complexity in what appears to be simplicity.

Her early shows had works with found and fabricated objects, and in the 1990s, she began working with fabric. In 1999, her work was exhibited at Site Santa Fe in New Mexico.
