John Yau visits the studio of painter Joanne Greenbaum and looks at Greenbaum's other body of work - ceramics - and the relationship between the two modes of working.
Yau writes: "The layering and structuring going on in Greenbaum's current paintings are swayed by her exploration of ceramics. I see her interest in glazes, and her impulse to use them in unconventional ways. This influences her palette, leading her to juxtapositions of different groupings of color within the same painting. At the same time... the ceramics are not a subsidiary of the paintings - they stand on their own. In their folds and bends, and in the way the different colored glazes might run down uneven surfaces, something particular happens, something that Greenbaum got to happen."
