Artist Profile


Joanne Greenbaum

b. 1953 NYC / Lives and works in NYC 

painting, drawing ceramics, sculpture 

A dense complexity of painterly layers, net-like structures, and a variety of expressive marks and gestures, characterize Joanne Greenbaum’s paintings and drawings. Greenbaum's artistic ancestry is mid-20th c. gestural abstraction (Still, Gorky, Frankenthaler, Twombly), but this is not your grandfather's Ab-Ex. Greenbaum's paintings exude spontaneity and a joyful embrace of color (familiar qualities), but also a kind of epically sustained self-reflection, painting as a building upon earlier iterations and phases: this takes the form of palimpsests and additions, wholesale emendations, subtle revisions of tack, compositional overrides, partial cancellations of entire chapters, sundry pictorial amendments and suffixes of all sorts, any number of of hey-I-have-a-new-idea passages - the process of thinking about, and with, and through, a painting, becomes the painting.
