Joanne Greenbaum combines multiple techniques and colors to explore the concept of gesture outside of its expressionistic trope. Her paintings serve as surfaces upon which she performs with paint. “In fact, I make painting by building,” she states. In a 2000 BOMB Artist on Artists piece on Greenbaum, Mary Heilmann mused, “Joanne Greenbaum’s line, especially in her recent paintings, has taken on a life of its own. Freed from the work of defining edges, it has become a figure in itself, a maze, stepping round and round and back and forth, making a deep and psychedelic space. These mazes [give] one the experience of several kinds of space at the same time.”
Joanne Greenbaum shows in NY with D’Amilio Terras, in London, UK with Greengrassi Gallery and in Basel, Switzerland with Nicolas Krupp Gallery. Her paintings were included in The Triumph of Painting, Abstract America at The Saatchi Gallery, London, UK in 2007. In 2008 she will have a solo museum survey at Museum Abteiberg, Monchengladbach, Germany that will travel to Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich, Switzerland.

Diebenkorn Teaching Fellowship, San Francisco Art Institute; Michael and Nina Sundell Residency for a Visual Artist, Yaddo; Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Faculty/Resident Artist; and Rockefeller Foundation, Bellagio Study and conference center, Bellagio, Italy.
