Recent paintings by Joanne Greenbaum at CCA Gallery

I came here with the idea to make 20 small paintings and even though I stuck with this plan the paintings didn't come out anything like I expected them to. The idea of artistic disappointment and the fear of not having any new ideas left and being really tired was a good place to start. 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. I am trying to do both, without making theoretical paintings, to work on pure instinct. Instinct has been given a bad rap lately, that there is a false notion that if you work on instinct that its not smart that its not new that one cant have an “idea” if one is working on instinct. these questions left me with a feeling that I wanted to try something else with the basic materials of paint on canvas. I wanted to give up on what I knew, to stop to make something that worked, that was “finished”, that was not about how good I was at painting. The interesting thing is that when one gives up on these things ones hand or handwriting or self still comes out in the works that you cant really give up on what you know no matter how hard you try. I also wanted to play with the idea of the signature style and that I dont have one anymore but its funny because no matter what you do to combat ones own history they still look like your own work.
