Ian J. G. Cozzens is a visual artist from Providence, Rhode Island. His work ranges from silkscreen prints to patchwork quilts to three-dimensional objects, functional and non-functional.

In “An Idea Is An Object, A Building Is A Memory”, at the AS220 Project Space, Ian combines a large perspectival-illusion text installation of a single word, with observed and measured drawings of now-vanished buildings in his neighborhood of Olneyville, as well as smaller three-dimensional letterform-based works and the fragments of past text installations.

At the closing reception and artist talk on Saturday, May 26th, from 3-5pm at the Project Space, Ian will speak about his work and answer questions alongside a discussion about “Community” and what that word could or should mean to us, the ways that it is misused to obscure or to marginalize, as well as the complexities and possibilities that it offers.
