Joanne Greenbaum


oil, ink, and acrylic on canvas
60 x 50 inches

Living and working in New York, Joanne Greenbaum confidently mixes styles, colors, and mediums in her process-based abstract paintings. In Untitled, a bold network of orange and black shapes climb the canvas, cleanly delineated with sharp lines and exaggerated angles before pooling together and mixing into the medley of colors. Greenbaum’s strokes of oil and ink drip, coil, and bleed into each other, suggesting the gestures of abstract expressionism and the process of automatic drawing. The rainbow palette moves the viewer’s eye throughout the expressive composition, bringing attention to small portions of the painting and uniting the canvas with broad geometric and organic shapes. Greenbaum’s paintings and sculptures have been included in solo and group exhibitions in galleries in the US and Europe.
