April 30-August 15

Appel was born in Israel, educated in Nepal and England and emigrated to the United States in 1967. She is known primarily for her paint-soaked brush strokes on large canvases that recreate the energy, color and the immediacy of classic, romantic landscapes.

Recently her focus has become more on image, narrative content and the emotional impact of subject matter. She returned to her roots in Israel and created a series of fabric collages inspired by Jerusalem called City of Dreams.
