The clean simple geometry of this minimalist sculpture by California artist Lori Cozen-Geller belies its profound meaning. The brushed aluminum piece explores the ideas of negative and positive space. The rectangle is intended to represent life, the world. The punched-out circle implies a life well lived on one’s own terms. The inspiration behind all Cozen-Geller’s work is emotion.
“What we see is what we feel.” Lori Cozen-Geller
“You can't sit on them or use them; you can only look at them. And you can't stop looking at them. They call attention to - well, not to themselves so much as to what they are saying. They attempt to reach across a verbal-visual divide to tell stories - or, rather, to elaborate on aspects of the human, and natural, condition.” Peter Frank, Art Critic
