1962 · United States
Blurring the boundary between fine and decorative art, Nancy Lorenz creates abstract works that fuse together Japanese aestheticism, expressionistic brushwork, craft and materials, and post-war abstraction. Lorenz is a member of Fractalism founded in 1994, an artistic movement that focuses on expressing instability, themes of proliferation and elements of chaos. Lorenz’s work also entails a sensual quality and is innately tactile and playful whilst simultaneously attaching importance to science and molecular research.
Nancy Lorenz was born in 1962 in the United States and currently resides and works in New York. After living in Japan, Lorenz received a BFA in Painting and Printmaking at the University of Michigan and an MFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and Rome. She also received a John Simon Guggenheim Award in 1998 and was a participant in the Artist in Residence program in Ireland in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2016. Lorenz’s work is featured in multiple public and private collections and has exhibited her work at many international art fairs. Galleries include Pierre Marie Giraud in Brussels and Contemporary Art in Portland.
