In Ferrari Silver, three striking geometric pieces are separate but appear to fit together. California artist Lori Cozen-Geller’s minimalist sculptures are inspired by emotion but their colour and form is influenced by the strong car culture in Los Angeles. Mark II is named after a dear family friend. The three panels represent three men in Cozen-Geller’s life—including her beloved father and her son.
“Although my art is an expression of my own personal feelings, these emotions are universal to all of us.” 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. Her work is held in private and public collections in North America.
