About Circle of Life

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

Lori Cozen Geller lives in California and acquired a BA from the University of Southern California. Her first work took shape within hours of a profound loss in her life--her father's passing. The artist translated her feelings of love and sadness onto a scrap of paper, the blueprint for her first sculpture. Cozen-Geller’s studio is in Venice Beach, California. She exhibits throughout North America. Her work is held in private and public collections in North America.
