Selected Press

“original,” “mysterious”

— Jerry Saltz

“What makes the picture really sign is, first, the beautifully judged nocturnal light that envelopes the scene…and then the heady profusion of the almost abstractly rendered foliage all around – joyfully abandoned manifesting a sort of libidinal overflow.”

— Barry Schwabsky


"Prosaic encounters of beauty during hikes, strolls, and swims simmer on the back burner of her mind until stirred up and warmed they knock on her door, demanding to be painted. Ideas and images never come out quite the way they went into the pot. Kozik is not a realist, slavishly painting a tree, branch by branch, but rather embodies a transcendental hunter-gatherer, a sly burglar of ideas and colors. The artist releases beauty from the prosaic."

“Kozik paints like a latter-day Magritte.”

— Pepe Karmel


“Kozik’s pictures represent stops on an internal journey rather than an exterior one.”

— James Kalm

"How can a pastoral imagination survive sin the city? [Kozik's} street-touch answer seems to be in a brand of fantasy that bubbles up out of the everyday."


“The new paintings, which employ more realistic hues, are now considerably relaxed in technique…almost lyrical.”

— Carol Diehl

“Kozik can handle paint exceptionally well.”

— Linda Yablonsky
