Joyce Kozloff, ‘Waving II’, 2016, CMA: Benefit Auction 2016

Joyce Kozloff has a classic New York artist’s loft with worktables covered with prints, brushes and tubes of paint alongside walls covered with her paintings in progress. Colorful, commanding, and detailed, her captivating pieces tell histories not taught in classrooms. Layering collaged images and textured paint onto maps, she transposes new perspectives onto archaic worldviews. Kozloff is a major figure in both the Pattern and Decoration and the Feminist art movements of the 1970s. Since the early 1990s, she has utilized mapping as a device for consolidating her enduring interests in history, culture, and the decorative and popular arts.
