Young Lyrical Painters

Review by Larry Aldrich in Art in America, 1968

With some clues from two other famous talent scouts—Richard Bellamy and Ivan Karp—Larry Aldrich has flushed out a “trendency” toward lyrical abst raction that may gain significant momentum during this art season.

Pat Lipsky, Undulated, sponged acrylic on canvas, 1969; collection of the artist. The total experience of the painting is that of vibrating color moving from one area to the next, rather than specific colors next to one another. Miss Lipsky was born in New York in 1941; after studying at Cornell she took her M.F.A. at Hunter College. She says she is “primarily interested in the liquid manner in which paint flows with water added,” is “trying to create paintings which have no obvious lines.”
