Calgary's Contemporary Art Gallery

Lisa Kozokowsky


Her iconic work pushes the boundaries between traditional and the contemporary abstractive landscape. An inspired student of Turner, her visions are thick and atmospheric; full of colour and movement. This energy bursts through Kozokowsky's rich abstractive landscapes, creating powerfully intriguing works that float between contemporary and historic painting styles.

Kozokowsky's oversized canvases in a combination of oils, metals and encaustics portray western images. Her inspiration for her uniquely "wild woman" style is drawn from the rich colors and gold leaf of the Canadian contemporary landscape, as well as the rich natural resources of our own topography.

Kozokowsky is primarily self-taught, with the exception of ACAD, University of Calgary, and City of Calgary night courses. She also attends various workshops and is constantly learning and exploring different techniques.

Lisa Kozokowsky's art is collected all over Canada and the United States by individuals and corporations alike.
