Diane Villani Editions was founded in 1980 to publish and exhibit prints by emerging American artists. There is also a varied inventory of prints by contemporary masters and works of special interest by other publishers, most notably Landfall Press and Cirrus Editions, both of which we represent in New York.
Each of Joanne Greenbaum’s paintings is an energetic profusion of overlapping techniques and colors, featuring clusters of architectural forms, irregular shapes, and doodle-like lines. Greenbaum often inserts numbers into her works, scribbled in a hurried hand and adding to the spontaneity of the artist’s exuberant brushstrokes. The untitled works from 2010 illustrate Greenbaum’s method, which consists of applying paint to canvas in a multitude of ways, allowing each mark to dictate the next in dramatic gestures that reveal the constant presence of the artist’s hand.
