Nancy Kozikowski

After 30 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.
