About the author

Nancy Kozikowski After 40 years of making tapestries I feel that the geometric designs which have evolved in my work express a life of their own. Working within and against the limitations of the loom and evolving from vegetable dyes to unlimited chemically dyed colors, these designs have begun to express power, movement and light. I have tried to release the pattern from the surface of the tapestry and create a fluid, gentle, shallow and spontaneous space. I want to release the image from the medium--into the imagination of the viewer.
