Trend Report
2004

203 x 178cm
Joanne Greenbaum’s canvases display a rarefied process of precipitance. Greenbaum’s paintings evolve through an organic process; her compositions directed by their continuously evolving forms, creating spontaneous tension through the immediacy of the artist’s hand. A deliberate lack of editing transpires as painterly confidence: each gesture contains an importance of its own realisation and ultimate contribution. In Trend Report, Greenbaum’s forms drip, spill, and overlap in competition for space: doodled numbers claim territories, while traces of lines rise defiantly through rich fields of colour. By laying bare her process, Greenbaum’s painting resonates with a sense of passing time, monumentalising the history of its own creation.
