About

In line with other artists and writers like Italo Calvino and Primo Levi who are inspired by scientific structure, Nancy Lorenz borrows the organization of the periodic table to create her own personal language of materiality. While the individual works name specific elements, it is the concept of the periodic table that guides the project. Created by the 19th century empirical dream that the universe could be categorized by its individual parts, the periodic table provides the basis for a mysterious chemical grammar, one that makes the universe both visibly material and hidden within its deep syntax. This sublime tension between the abstract and the material, the scientific and the poetic, informs the experience of Lorenzʼs work. Full materials list: Lemon gold leaf, gilder's clay, aqua resin, pigment, and shellac on wooden panel
