My work was influenced in the early 1960s by the New York school of abstract expressionists. What drew me to this work was its sense of improvisation, high energy, and an emphasis on the painting process. Instead of using paint to carry out a visual idea, I was thrilled to discover the visual idea through the process of creating it.
I am in love with color, shape and form. In this whimsical portrait of flowers, I create a garden of energetic lines and colorful shapes.
I paint listening to music, standing up at an easel, using broad gestures to create a sense of movement.
Lynne Taetzsch’s abstract paintings are hanging in private homes and corporate offices throughout the world. She has been in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in New York, California, Florida, and elsewhere in the USA. She studied fine art at Cooper Union, the University of California, and the University of Southern California. Describing her painting process, Lynne says: It’s the painting surface that I love - the lusciousness of color in its thick and thin varieties, flat and opaque to keep the eye on the surface, or transparent and airy to suggest deep space. My goal is to stay as close to the edge as possible, to keep that sense of organic happening, as if the painting had grown itself rather than having been crafted by me. Yet it is the artist's eye that seeks to prevail, telling the hand to add that last brush stroke which brings it all together.
