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.”
