A pleasingly prismatic composition, the present piece by artist Polly Apfelbaum depicts a series of symbols and shapes organized in a repetitive and rhythmic order. Flower-like icons alternate row to row, each slightly different from the one next to it.

Polly Apfelbaum (American, b.1955) is an artist whose career straddles painting and installation. Apfelbaum studied at the Tyler School of Art in Elkins Park, PA. Installing vibrant colorful abstract velvet patterns that seem to blossom from the floorboards, her work appears to live without a sense of order. However, her compositions are rigidly premeditated. Her romantic abstract geometric patterns live organically in Apfelbaum’s imaginary world. Apfelbaum has received the Joseph H. Hazen Rome Prize, an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and an Artist’s Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, among others.
