    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.

  • Artist Polly Apfelbaum in conversation with Connie Butler, within Apfelbaum's exhibition Face (Geometry) (Naked) Eyes.

What was your most fun/influential class?
“Illustrated Book” really made me focus on why I liked certain ideas, and why I made certain choices. It taught me to get to the heart of a project and be consistent with that concept. I definitely did some of my most unhindered and honest work.

What is your hometown? I grew up in Visalia, California.

What originally attracted you to Otis?
I expected to be held to a very high standard, and knew that demanding a lot from myself was the best way for me to progress.
