Lynne Drexler began making landscape paintings at the age of eight, and later pursued training under Hans Hofmann and Robert Motherwell. Drexler, who loved both representational landscape painting and Abstract Expressionism/gene/abstract-expressionism, produced works that married her two interests. While her work always demonstrated an emphasis on color and composition, Drexler’s mature style is often described as a synthesis of Post-Impressionist landscape and abstraction. She became known for a style that layered small, repetitive brush marks in vivid colors across large areas of canvas. Drexler considered herself a colorist above all, and employed color to “heighten optical energy.” She was an admirer of Henri Matisse, though she also drew inspiration from classical music and opera; in the 1970s Drexler made hundreds of works based on musical pieces, in particular Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle.
