Her concept driven work has been depicted in paint, sculpture and digital media amongst others. Open to any subject, the exploration of ideas is what is important to her and she adapts her skills in many processes to convey them. Provocative yet hopeful, her visions adopt themes of mortality, emotion, truth, time, movement, environment and morality. Loz plays with perceptions of what is seen and not seen, using bold shape, line, form, colour and symbolism. Enjoying an element of harmonious discord when creating work. Giving a mystical quality, which expresses the paradox within concepts and circumstance, showing beauty in unusual places.

 

Loz has a unique eye for detail, light and colour, using layering techniques within her digital and painted works giving visual, as well as evocative depth.  

 

Loz Atkinson is an award winning, internationally exhibited and widely collected artist living and working in Leicester.
