    New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum’s work has situated itself as a hybrid of painting, sculpture, and installation over a career spanning 30 plus years. Exploring the intricacies of color, Apfelbaum weaves her way, both literally and conceptually, through ideas of Minimalism, Pop aesthetics, and Color Field painting to blur the lines between two and three dimensional art making.

Michael Joyce, Twentieth Century Man

 

Here is what you think. Someone, you think, has dragged Robert’s body off the path and deeper in the woods, perhaps burying it in a shallow grave or under leaves, which would mean that he had not killed himself, unless whoever had dragged him off had wanted to put off the discovery of his body for reasons of their own, say out of horror or because they loved him.

 

Michael Joyce's poems have been published in Beloit Poetry Journal, FOLLY (LA), Gastronomica, nor/, The Iowa Review, New Letters, Notre Dame Review, Parthenon West, Spoon River Review, New Review, OR (Otis Review), The Common, and THE SHOp (Cork).
