CCA Andratx, C/ Estanyera 2 - 07150 Andratx
Dirtbag

The premise from Joanne Greenbaum for these works was "Can I make a painting with no ideas or can I make paintings that are all about ideas and nothing else? and why does it seem that you cant do both?".

The result is in her own words: "OK so I had these colored inks that I got and that were permanent in that they didnt break down once dry. So I threw pure colors on the canvasses and then threw water on it when it was still wet and then let them dry. This was the ground for most of the paintings. Then I worked on top of that without thinking of anything in particular, using a system of notations and drawing that I rely on but this time it was automatic and kind of played out...

No matter what I did they all looked good, and then simultaneously were all about nothing and were so much about crossing out and erasing and destructing what I liked about them. I realized that these paintings were about energy, anger and restlessness and they were not about serenity at all even though the Museum and studios at CCA Andratx are beautiful and quiet these are not."
