Currently she is engaged with developing new projects between departments to create interdisciplinary live events and publications.

Lois is interested in the expanded field of painting and uses a wide range of techniques within her own practice. Her research explores the relationship between painting and photography to create new ways of depicting place with reference to the contemporary sublime. Narratives and related theories of representation and depiction are central concerns testing the viability of figurative painting within contemporary art practice.
