Third Degree Series with La Pera Projects
MEET NEW HAVEN-BASED ARTIST WHITNEY LORENZE
Today we are continuing La Pera Projects Third Degree Series.
We have asked the same questions to some of our Collectors, Artists, Friend Curators and Colleagues in the Industry. Get to know them through the Third Degree with La Pera.
TODAY meet Whitney Lorenze, a New Haven-based painter, printmaker and draftswoman who received her BFA in Drawing from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in 2019.
You are addicted to… Cigarettes 🤷🏻♀️
What art is for you? It’s a cliché, but I know it when I see it.

Name a necessary change in the art world I would ask Brad Troemel
The best advice you have received... "Just start painting. It’s not brain surgery, no one is dying on the table."
Favorite artist or work of art... It changes often, but I’ve been thinking about the Wayne Thiebaud show at Acquavella since I saw it.
Tell us about your next project... I’m currently working on a large canvas, and forcing myself to go much slower than I am at all comfortable with.
Your color... Green, in life. Pinkish-orange in paint.
Dream museum... I haven’t been to very many, in the grand scheme of things. But the Borghese, if I had to pick.
Favorite fruit? Strawberries
