Artist Description

Nancy Lorenz earned a BFA Summa Cum Laude in Painting and Printmaking at the University of Michigan. She received an MFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and Rome, and a John Simon Guggenheim Award in 1998. Lorenz lives and works in New York City.

“Nancy Lorenz creates highly finished, abstract work out of luxury materials; her work is sensual, exploratory, tactile, and playful. Inspired by traditional Japanese forms, materials, and craftsmanship, as well as through her own awareness of twentieth-century art practice, she seeks to revisit and re-imagine the art object, to somehow ‘make it new.’” – Justin Spring, American art and culture writer.
