Lori Cozen-Geller: Minimal Movement
June 19th – August 14th, 2021
Solana Beach, California – Madison Gallery is proud to present Los Angeles-based construction- minimalist Lori Cozen-Geller’s third solo exhibition, Minimal Movement. Below, the artist shares her thoughts and vision while creating these works under such diverse times.
“My new body of work represents choosing perseverance, strength and vigor despite the circumstances. Positivity directs each sculpture in a way that allows the work to appear to open up and move towards its goal. The use of vibrant automotive paint finishes, and dynamic shapes help launch the sculptures in the direction of a boldly optimistic perspective. My core belief in the power of positivity is encapsulated in this body of work.” – Lori Cozen-Geller
“Cozen-Geller is indeed a minimalist, following in the wake of hundreds of principally (if by no means exclusively) American artists who have pared down their formal vocabularies to essences. But Cozen-Geller wants something different out of large, simple shapes than do most of her minimalist predecessors and cohorts: she wants meaning. Symbolic meaning. Iconography, that is, as recognizable (if not necessarily self-evident) to the untrained viewer as a stop sign – albeit far less literal. “– Peter Frank art critic
A Los Angeles, CA native, Cozen-Geller’s education includes a BA from the University of Southern California. She has exhibited throughout New York, Los Angeles, Aspen, Germany, and China. Cozen-Geller’s work is found in public collections such as Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, the Ventura Country Museum in Ventura, California and the MOAH, Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, California.
