ARTISTS STATEMENT The Spirit and Humanity of Nature, The Nature of Humanity and Spirit. Doorways, Colors and the Magnificence of Nature. Places through which we may see beyond the normal confines of our everyday sight. Access points through which we may travel. The beauty and complexity of form and shape and color in all of nature leave me speechless. With my work I strive to capture the feelings these experiences bring to me and share them with others. I grew up in northern Wisconsin on a farm, on an island. I grew up loving stories, myths, legends and songs. It was peaceful, gentle and beautiful there. Woods, fields, wildflowers, and views of the lake from rosy sunrise to golden sunset filled my life. What most amazed me were the intricacies of nature. The sight of a setting sunbeam shining through the branches of a tree, illuminating a delicate spiderweb and transforming that web to a magical world formed of liquid silver. I came to see a personality in nature. A “secret” face. And the magic of nature and the stories that it brought to life in my imagination filled me with an enduring childlike sense of wonder and inspired me to create both then and now. I work in a variety of mediums, but my favorite is transparent acrylics. I strive to make each of my works a window or a doorway filled with all the colors of the rainbow, all the wonder of the turning of the seasons and all the peace that I believe we could find for ourselves if we could just slow down enough to really see the beauty that fills our world. I think my best works are the ones that give the viewer a feeling of this deeper magic being mirrored within themselves. BIO Colleen Koziara was born in Chicago, raised on Washington Island in northern Wisconsin, spent a few years scampering about the country living here and there, and then returned to Chicago in 1985 to attend the American Academy of Art and she loved it so much in Chicago, she is still there! Colleen has more than 20 books featuring her art already in print and more in production. Colleen has been consistently featured in juried gallery showings for more than 20 years, has 4 solo shows to her credit, and pieces in private collections in the US, Japan and the UK. Currently Colleen has several pieces on display in the current showing at Life Force Arts Center in Chicago. The Making of Art has been for Colleen an escape to a place of respite from her regular pursuits in the healthcare industry working with seniors, most specifically those with Alzheimer’s Disease. 6 years ago, Colleen started her own business, Beyond Bingo, Inc., and now focuses on bringing the arts and creativity to seniors across the country as part of her role as an instructor, facilitator, programming consultant and Dementia Care Trainer.
