Nancy Loughlin was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1946. She received an MFA from Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles in 1970.
Her latest body of work explores a perceived growing discord between an increasingly unhappy human race and nature. depicting complex problems through chaotic compositions, densely populated by animals, plants, machines, and meta-environments. Loughlin uses many layers of paint and distorted representations space, size, and perspective to emphasize this concept.
The series emerged from questions about encroachment, dominion, pollution and destruction. She hopes to strike a balance between meaning and beauty. All her paintings are intended as important commentaries about our shared existence, she says.
Her work has been awarded several prizes and exhibited nationwide.
