Joanne Greenbaum

In her boldly colored, hypnotic canvases, painter Joanne Greenbaum creates her own form of eccentric abstraction, layering loose, graffiti-like lines against washes of dissonant colors, or intricate linear elements against large areas of white space. Greenbaum's paintings are intimate and gestural, insistently presenting the viewer with the traces of the artist's hand. In addition to her paintings, Greenbaum also began creating small ceramic sculptures in 2004, whose shifting, abstract forms and layered glazing link them to her canvases.

Greenbaum's exhibitions include solo shows at the CCA Andratx in Majorca, the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, and the Saatchi Gallery in London, as well as group exhibitions at institutions such as MoMA PS1, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Brooklyn Museum.
