New York artist Lynne Taetzsch's contemporary abstract paintings have been shown in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad, including the Hartley Gallery in Winter Park, Florida; the Alexandria Museum of Art in Alexandria, LA; the Paula Insel Gallery in New York City; and the Cosmopolitan Art Association in Seoul, So. Korea. She was recently chosen as an "emerging artist" by ART BUSINESS NEWS (February, 2002).

Collectors describe Taetzsch's work as "vibrant" and "exciting." A review of her 2001 solo show in Ithaca, New York, said "Taetzsch is a painter very much in the tradition of the best of 20th century abstraction." Her painting is recognizable for its energy, expressiveness, and bold use of color. "I keep on visiting your website," says Isobel Naden, London art dealer. "Your paintings are fantastic."

Taetzsch's paintings and drawings have appeared on the cover or within the journals CENTRAL PARK, SUN DOG and PACIFIC REVIEW, as well as on the cover of the book HOT FLASHES published by Faber and Faber in 1995. Taetzsch is a creative writer as well as a painter, and has published short stories and essays in numerous national journals. She has given public readings and art talks in galleries, bookstores, and other cultural organizations.

Taetzsch (pronounced as one syllable to rhyme with "H") was born in East Orange, New Jersey. She studied art at Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, the University of Southern California, and the University of California in Los Angeles.

Artist's Statement:

My painting process is analogous to the improvisation of a jazz musician. It is 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.
