Artist Statement:
I experience my memories through the materials of my childhood surroundings: fairy dust, cement to construct stability. While some materials signify a foundation, other materials are uncontrollable adding a force that is always just out of reach. I do not define my home as a shelter. Home becomes tangible through my work.

Biography:
Francesca Cozzone was born and raised in the northern suburbs of the Chicagoland area, now living and working in San Francisco, CA. She received her MFA in 2014 at California College of the Arts and her BFA at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2010. She is an sculptor whose work is a catalyst for discovering what home means to her. She uses materials from her childhood surroundings to construct stability while maintaining a sense of precarity. She is inspired by bird nests, kitchen science, and her Italian American family traditions.
