CONQUEST FINDS RARE SPACE FOR SUCCESSFUL ARTIST September 13, 2010
Conquest Advisors negotiated lease for famous Artist Nancy Lorenz at Flatiron building 110 E 23rd. She will occupy the Penthouse and the entire surrounding floor. This spectacular space with high ceilings, great views, amazing light and skylights is a one of a kind space. Lorenz will continue to create her amazing paintings and art work in this great space.
After living in Japan, Nancy Lorenz earned a BFA in Painting and Printmaking. In 1988 she received her MFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art, studying in Philadelphia and Rome.Lorenz received a John Simon Guggenheim award in 1998, and participated in the Cill Rialaig artist in residence program in Ireland in 2008. She lives and works in New York City, with her husband and two children. The paintings of Nancy Lorenz juxtapose luxurious materials and a reverence for fine craft with the looser gestures of abstract expressionism. A kind of reinterpreted Japanese aestheticism is often fused with incidental marks and unrestrained brushwork. Having lived in Tokyo for five years, the artist has admired and incorporated the idea that decorative materials, such as mother of pearl inlay, lacquer, and gold leaf, can be used in a painterly, sublime way. http://www.nancy-lorenz.com/ .
