Abstract Art by Lynne Taetzsch
We all seem to have a passion embedded within ourselves, although sometimes we don’t discover what that is until we are much older. However, Lynne Taetzsch’s talent and passion came shining through at a very young age, mapping her destiny to become an accredited scholar of art, author, and much sought after abstract artist.
At Rutgers University, the University of Southern California, and the University of California, Lynne took art classes in painting, print-making, drawing and pottery. But the biggest influence on her art was the two years she spent at Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City, where she had classes in calligraphy, architectonics, one and two dimensional design, life drawing, and painting. This is when her work gradually became more abstract as she experimented with collage materials in an intense focus on composition.
Lynne prefers acrylics to oils as they dry quicker. She works on a painting over many days, adding layers that accumulate without totally eradicating the previous layers. The process or action of the painting allows her to express her intentions through the motion of the brush or palette knife.
Lynne is quick to point out that it’s the painting surface that she loves most about what she does. She comments that “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.”
Lynne’s art hangs in homes, group institutions, galleries and museums throughout the United States and abroad. Her colorful, energy-filled original paintings, drawings, and limited edition giclee prints on canvas and paper are available at her studio in Ithaca, New York and she is happy to consider special commissions and assignments.
