Lawrence Willette @SUNY New Paltz 1975
Born in Manhattan on March 16th 1952, Lawrence Alexander Willette cultivated his prowess as an abstract expressionist and has since mastered several other genres of painting over the years as a professional artist. Before even finishing his years as an undergraduate at S.U.N.Y, he had a stint teaching graduate classes in the BFA program, where he came under the tutelage of two masters painters: Alexander Minewski, a protégé of Matisse, and Joop Sanders, a friend and compatriot of Willem de Kooning. The result being an influence based on the poetry of Matisse's nudes and the compositional complexities of abstract expressionism.
