James Aponovich, a lifelong resident of New Hampshire, began his career as a portraitist and figure painter. Since the early 1980s he has focused primarily creating still-lifes, which are notable for their idealized rendering of objects and landscape backdrops. Aponovich graduated from the University of New Hampshire at Durham in the late ‘60s and immediate success exhibiting regularly in galleries in New York and in museums throughout the United States. Examples of Aponovich’s work may be seen in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Portland (Maine) Museum of Art, the DeCordova Museum, the New Britain Museum of American Art; the Currier museum of art; among others.
