    Working in Miami since 1972, Lynne Golob Gelfman has been inspired by the diverse subtropical world of Florida and by the culture and landscape of Colombia, where she first visited as an American Field Service student in 1961. Her Thru Blue 4, 1978, display her unique approach to abstraction. Working with acrylics, Gelfman painted this work from the verso side, allowing the paint to seep through to the painting’s front and incorporating unforeseen effects into her process. With its repetition of systematic patterns and breakdown of those patterns, Gelfman’s abstraction exhibits her inspiration from painters like Agnes Martin, as well as from the woven textiles of Central and South America.
