Layered and interrupted by geometry Loz’s paintings concern themselves with "the human need to measure, understand and conquer the existential mysteries of the universe".
We can gaze into the cosmos and marvel at the vastness of the universe but only for a moment before a line, an edge or a shape crashes us back to earth.
Loz has exhibited extensively, internationally and beyond, with one of her Imagined nebula painting having been digitally ‘bounced’ off the moon and another currently travelling through outer space on the NASA probe OSIRIS-REx.
