On the occasion of the exhibition Joyce Kozloff: Other Geographies at CB1 Gallery, Los Angeles (through February 17, 2013), Betty Ann Brown interviews Joyce Kozloff about her history as a political artist and her recent series of paintings.
Although Kozloff has worked in a variety of media she remarks: "I've always painted. Whether I paint on tiles or on canvas, the brush has been my primary tool. However, I stopped painting on canvas in 1977 and worked in other media for 20 years. Now I paint on canvas. I also paint on panels, paper and fabric. I draw and do collage. For me, there are no hierarchies among media. I don't call myself a painter. I call myself an artist."
