Lois often collaborates with others, using art as a vehicle to explore subjects that might be embarrassing, painful, or simply hidden from view, be it loss, grief, health issues or body-image.
She often uses bright colours and familiar objects that draw you in- textiles that are stitched to connect us all.
This is art that supports people to relax, laugh, cry, find a little solace. It rejoices peoples strength, shares ways to overcome adversity, frames experiences in new ways to understand, share & celebrate.
Out now, the book INSIGHTS is a reflection on creative practice in textile art. Through the publication and accompanying exhibition tour, the members of the Textile Study Group share their varied approaches to artistic practice: where ideas come from; how they develop and make work; where they work.
