About Joanne Greenbaum

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.

American, b. 1953, New York, New York, based in United States
