Ida Applebroog | City & Country

Artist Ida Applebroog discusses the differences between making work and living in New York City versus her home in Upstate New York.

Ida Applebroog propels her paintings and drawings into the realm of installation by arranging and stacking canvases in space, exploding the frame-by-frame logic of comic-book and film narrative into three-dimensional environments. Strong themes in her work include gender and sexual identity, power struggles, and the pernicious role of mass media in desensitizing the public to violence.
