Abstract
Similarly to Elam’s other sink-centric work, e.g. “Letters and Dishes,” “Joe and Greens” takes note of a pair of hands in and around a kitchen faucet. At work, these worn hands meticulously prepare vegetables: de-stemming kale, washing (what appears to be) radishes, and tossing lettuce about soapy water. The man on screen is Joe Hendrix, JoAnn Elam's second husband.
