Summary Polly Apfelbaum's multifaceted oeuvre is characterised by the search for new artistic means of expression and the breaking down of barriers between sculpture, painting and installation. The artist combines techniques and materials from both fine art and arts and crafts. She experiments with ceramic, textiles, paper and handwoven carpets. Stylistically, she is influenced by Bauhaus Modernism, Minimal Art, Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. Since the 1990s, Apfelbaum has used the floor as a surface on which to present her "Fallen Paintings". Her intent exploration of space, colour, form and materiality finds its logical progression in this show on the upper floor of the Belvedere 21. Themes such as feminism and spirituality, quotations from the history of art as well as references to popular prints and comics are intrinsic to Apfelbaum's art.
