About Lori Cozen-Geller

Working in wood or fiberglass overlaid with automotive paint, Lori Cozen-Geller creates geometric wall sculptures with cutouts. The incised pieces, whether sharply angled or softly curved depending on the emotion she aims to convey, are displayed nearby at a corresponding angle, creating an interplay between positive and negative space. Cozen-Geller’s work is driven by emotion and intuition; she explains her process as “a journey that begins with a feeling” and develops into a piece of art by “by freezing emotions and placing them into concrete form…It is as if the emotions themselves dictate the specifications of how the art is developed.” In the final product, Cozen-Geller’s emotions are represented by the sculpture’s dimensions, color, and finish.
