From the publisher: "Polly Apfelbaum creates what she calls 'fallen paintings,' hybrid works of rare beauty that exist in a contentious, ambivalent space between painting, sculpture and installation. These works transform the colors of mass culture into wild oscillating spectra bordering on the organic. This volume accompanies the first large museum survey of her work, and features new and recent installations as well as a range of work from the past 15 years."
