Kozlova finds the motifs for her paintings in scientific figures or by zooming in everyday objects and constellations. Under the microscope, they show their tiniest details. She then reduces the visible components to the simplest basic structures, such as dots and lines. Her works thus oscillate between abstract and figurative art. Due to the predominant monochrome realization, her works appear to be graphic at first glance; the structures, however, are mostly applied paste-like, in several layers, in acrylic and lacquer.
