Joanne GreenbaumThings We Said Today
School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Anderson Auditorium, Boston, USA
The Tufts University Art Galleries at SMFA are pleased to present New York-based painter Joanne Greenbaum’s debut solo exhibition in New England.
Things We Said Today follows Greenbaum’s prodigious mark-making and uncanny color sensibility across media and surface. Using a language of abstraction that toggles between chaos and order, Greenbaum takes on architecture with a suite of recent, oversized canvases, punctuated by a series of sculptural pen drawings, watercolors, painted ceramics, and artist sketchbooks. In total, Greenbaum’s repetitive gestures and overlaying forms conjure the intensity and immediacy of a racing mind and unspoken thoughts amid the chaos of our time.
Things We Said Today is accompanied by brochure with an essay by Kate McNamara, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions at Otis College of Art and Design.
