Press Release

PRESS RELEASE

 

14 May 2020 (New Orleans, LA) JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY is pleased to announce, The Angles of Emotion, the debut solo exhibition of Los Angeles-based artist Lori Cozen-Geller. In this exhibition, the artist has created a series of sculptures that employ geometric shapes to speak to the complex nature of the human emotional spectrum. In light of the COVID-19 global pandemic, this exhibition will be on view exclusively online. Jonathan Ferrara Gallery hopes to forge a new path forward in which art remains visible and accessible during this time of global isolation. A major theme that can be drawn from this exhibition is that art is essential, especially during times of separation, because it acts as a conduit for human connection and emotional expression. Art helps us process what we feel, yet can't understand. It unites us through shared experiences and it holds a mirror up to humanity. The Angles of Emotion will be featured as an online exclusive, running from 14 May 2020 - 17 July 2020,  premiering in conjunction with Lori Cozen-Geller's JFG TV Artist Takeover on all Jonathan Ferrara Gallery social media platforms.

 

The artist says of this exhibition...

 

Emotions can shift in an instant, or they can gradually transform. Both the subtle curves and acute angles within my art point to the wide-ranged spectrum and frequency of emotions. One can be cruising in a state of contentment and suddenly take a sharp turn into another state— whether joy, affection, sadness, anger, fear. On the other hand, emotions can transition subtly, over time, and with more fluidity. I use this fluctuation to inform the blueprint of my art.

 

 

LORI COZEN-GELLER grew up in Los Angeles, California and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Southern California. She currently lives and works in Venice, California. Lori’s first work took shape within hours of her father’s passing. During this transformative period, the artist translated her feelings of love and loss onto a scrap of paper, the blueprint for her first piece of work.

 

During the art process, Cozen-Geller looks to capture the emotions of the heart and mind and places them into visual form within space
