My evolution is slightly different from other artists. I began as an abstract artist and moved toward a greater realism. Practically all my pictures are modifications of what I see. Sometimes I imagine a scene I would like to do and I do it completely from memory. Most often, however, I do it from actual life, but never do I register it as I see it. I always bring in changes. If I may give a parallel: an imitator of bird's voices sat in a park, while over head, very often the bird was out of tune. That's how I see Nature. Very often Nature is out of tune.LL

about the artist

Lozowick made over 300 prints in his life time. He preferred lithograph because of the bold black and white effects that could be obtained. He was always in touch with nature but many of his images are buildings and bridges. He was a meticulous craftsman and artist.
Here is an example of one of his images
