Biography

Each of Joanne Greenbaum’s paintings is an energetic profusion of overlapping techniques and colors, featuring clusters of architectural forms, irregular shapes, and doodle-like lines. Greenbaum often inserts numbers into her works, scribbled in a hurried hand and adding to the spontaneity of the artist’s exuberant brushstrokes. The untitled works from 2010 illustrate Greenbaum’s method, which consists of applying paint to canvas in a multitude of ways, allowing each mark to dictate the next in dramatic gestures that reveal the constant presence of the artist’s hand.
