Greenbaum’s Bedroom Set seduces with its sensitive
contradiction of surface. Delicate lines and overlapping forms
develop in a myriad of architectural suggestion; fragile colours
and delicate textures vie for their position in illusionary
space. It’s this mystical fabrication of spatial and temporal
depth which Joanne Greenbaum authors with astute deception.
From fanciful ideas, false starts and misjudgements, to defiant
and bold conclusions, Joanne Greenbaum incorporates the entire
history of her process within her canvas. Skittishly shifting
from delicately fussy sketches to voluptuous and engulfing
fields, each layer proffers a palimpsest residue, thinly masking
the traces of what came before. Concealing paintings within
paintings, Bedroom Set teases with flirtatious volley,
an abstracted peep-show of enticement and supremacy.
