"Using paper maps that she cuts, paints, overlaps, sews, and folds, Brozyna makes imagined landscapes and terrains out of hundreds of small circular and fan-like forms. Each is uniquely crafted and when arranged en masse alludes to a larger whole, a larger landscape - as Brozyna describes it - 'that is intertwined and interdependent.'

For Brozyna, the use of maps is an integral part of her work. Maps are a means of navigation that simultaneously illustrate borders – both natural and human-made – and exploration – the freedom to travel and experience other places. By manipulating existing maps, altering them, and reassembling them, Brozyna is re-mapping the world.

Brozyna says that her undulating compositions of modular forms appear to 'grow organically and intuitively,' and by redefining the landscape 'it is a type of regeneration creating new life and possibilities of form.'
