Loretta Nash
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Loretta Nash (°1970, United States) makes drawings, paintings and photograph portraits. By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of class values, Nash touches various overlapping themes and strategies. Several reoccurring subject matter can be recognized, such as the relation with popular culture and media, working with repetition, provocation and the investigation of the process of expectations.

Her drawings are characterized by the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of agricultural and religious mentality in which recognition plays an important role. With a subtle minimalist approach, she often creates work using creative game tactics, but these are never permissive. Play is a serious matter: during the game, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation.

Her practice provides a useful set of allegorical tools for maneuvering with a pseudo-minimalist approach in the world of drawing: these meticulously planned works resound and resonate with images culled from the fantastical realm of imagination. By using popular themes such as sexuality, family structure and violence, she creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. The work is aloof and systematic and a cool and neutral imagery is used.
Her works often refers to pop and mass culture. Using written and drawn symbols, a world where light-heartedness rules and where rules are undermined is created. Loretta Nash currently lives and works in West Memphis.
