Tic Tac

Fan - 2 Expert - 0

Is there a game going on here?  Or games?  Almost obliterated by creeping vines and petals, the game board becomes a frame for something else.

48" x 48" x 1.5" original painting on stretched canvas, with the image continuing around the sides so that no frame is required.  It comes with picture wire, ready to hang.

 With a shock of floral and sunny reds and oranges that will stop the viewer in their tracks, Lynne Taetzsch’s Tic Tac is a brilliant example of the overlap between abstraction and figurative reality. Abstraction can often seem so removed from the physical world that it can almost feel like a rejection of it. No one should be faulted for this interpretation because it is easier to process figurative forms in the material world than abstract ones. In fact, we often unconsciously turn the abstract all around us (arguably more pervasive than the figurative, and who's to say what warrants the label and what doesn’t?) into the figurative. But then an artist like Taetzsch makes it unavoidably clear that even simple childhood games are aesthetically an exercise in geometric abstraction.
