The abstract works of Joanne Greenbaum have made her become the role model of a young generation of American abstract painters. The special quality of Greenbaum’s painting is reflected in a playful style abstraction. She never follows prescribed forms of abstract pictorial invention, but makes the permanent attempt to create new form configurations and gestural paint applications by using a variety of painting techniques and colors that lead to the creation of a complex cosmos. At the same time, Greenbaum is not afraid to reveal to the beholder all elements of the picture-finding, be it the various colors and techniques that are used in impressively wild combination or faulty picture elements, which are perfect precisely because of their defectiveness as random, unconscious gestures.
