Excellent is a playful painting, as the title itself is a play on the "X" that alternates with the "O" in patterns set up in a geometric grid. The image appears flat, but has much depth as the shapes recede into the background or pulse with a demand to be known in the foreground. This is a matted and framed original acrylic painting on archival watercolor paper. The framed size is 28" x 22" and the image size is 23.5" x 17.5". The frame is black aluminum and the mat is an off-white.
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.
