Nancy Lupo’s artworks and installations draw our attention to often overlooked everyday objects, materials that deeply affect our understanding of the world. Her work frequently examines the mysterious and alien character of text, language and symbols. Los Angeles-based Lupo explores the potential for confusion to be a slow force that is both unsettling and full of potential.
Nancy Lupo was born in 1983. She received her MFA from Yale University in 2011.
