Lori Nelson is a Brooklyn and Catskills-based painter whose narrative work incorporates aspects of traditional portraiture, Magic Realism, and vintage story-book illustration. In her ongoing "Cryptotween" series she explores the vulnerability and essence of what it means to be young and monstrous. Nature and technology also play prominently in her paintings as do the “homey” aspects of her homespun childhood built around self-reliance in a religious household in the West.
Nelson has exhibited her work internationally and has been widely covered in a variety of media including Vice, Hi-Fructose, Juxtapoz, Beautiful Bizarre, and Flavorwire. For nine consecutive years, Nelson has worked in different capacities with 4heads, the New York City nonprofit organization that produces the annual Governors Island Art Fair. Among her duties, Nelson has served as the director of the Artist in Residence program and director of the art fair’s small-works pop-up shop.
