Nancy Lorenz’s unique work blurs the distinction between fine and decorative art. Fusing reinterpreted Japanese aestheticism with incidental marks and unrestrained brushwork, her pieces combine a deep understanding of post-war abstraction with a reverence for the craft and materials of traditional Asian art. Five years in Tokyo left her with an understanding of luxurious materials, such as mother-of-pearl inlay, lacquer, and gold leaf, as well as the ability to utilize them in a painterly, sublime way.
