160125 Painting 265 - Edition 1/1
For “Paintings,” Greenberg begins her process by applying a range of paint types to a glass palette, manipulating both dry and wet pigments to create dynamic surfaces of pure colour and texture. She then photographs these painted experiments under both natural and artificial light sources. The process is a paring down of both media to their essential elements: mixing and blending on the artist’s palette meets the process of filtering and directing light. Once her image is captured, Greenberg discards the painting, effectively eliminating—but also complicating—notions of subject and source.
Greenberg’s photographs are studies in texture, lighting, and mood. The work is stretched on canvas and floating in a white frame.
