Her concept driven work has been depicted in paint, installation and digital media. The exploration of ideas is what compels her and she adapts her skills in many processes to convey them. Her work is provocative yet hopeful. Inspired by nature and interrupted iby geometry Loz's paintings concerm themselves with the human need to conquer and understand the existential mysteries of the universe. Having a distinct eye for detail, light and layering colour, gives her work visual, as well as evocative depth. Gazing into the sky and cosmos, marvelling at the vastness, but only for a moment, before a line, an edge or form crashes us back to earth.

 

Loz has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe, America and beyond, with one of her Imagined Nebula paintings being digitally 'bounced' off the Moon and another currently travelling through outer space on the NASA probe OSIRIS-REx. Loz has also had project supported by the arts council england including 'Expedition JP237' which saw her climb a mountain in Italy to discover the fatal crash site of her great grandfathers WW2 halifax bomber, producing a large body of work influenced by her experiences which included a reworked Bristol Hercules engine.

 

Loz has created many pieces for public art events throughout the UK. Including jungle city edinburgh that featured her work on the front cover of the accompanying art book. 'Deliverance' for Elephant Parade London 2010, sold at auction for £10,000 and 'An Unquenched Defiance To The Stars' for Willd Dolphins Aberdeen 2014 sold at auction for £22,000. To date her work has helped raise nearly £40,000 for various wildlife and childrens charities.

Loz Atkinson is an award winning, widely collected artist, who has been practicing and exhibiting for over 10 years.
