Nancy Lorenz’s oeuvre displays an uncanny understanding of ancient practices fueled with modern techniques, adding further to the contemporary dialogue in the art world of referencing the past to comment on the present. In fact, as one walks throughout the space, it is almost impossible to distinguish her practice from that of civilizations past, finishing cardboard and wood to resemble centuries of age. This meticulous process, of imbuing ordinary materials with history itself, can be observed across all of the works displayed here.
