Nancy Lorenz


Lorenz starts every drawing with spontaneous, faint, and gestural lines and imagery. Building on that initial drawing, the Artist adds metal leaf materials and raised, leafed surfaces. Drawing inspiration from the history of ink painting and time spent living in Tokyo, Lorenz creates abstracted landscapes and studies in form that pay close attention to the juxtaposition of materials, shapes, and the hand of the artist.

In essence, Lorenz's works depict sky and water. Unfettered by specific outcomes, the Artist employs a myriad of materials such as gilt glass, iron filings, sand, and metal leaf to allow for discovery and rumination within her drawing process.
