All of her creations have a huge, borderless space, which creates a floating, gravity-free world, that changes constantly according to the ambient light. The brush marks fuse together the depth and the strength of stone with the lightness of air and space, shaping the artworks and evoking timeless songs.She has recently exhibited her artworks at Mazlish Gallery, (21st of October – 23rd of November 2023), in New York, showing her newest body of work, entitled “Secret”, formed by large abstract paintings and smaller works on canvas. “Secret” reflected an expression of Loy Luo quest for Self, displaying themes such as internal conflicts and warring impulses.

Her abstract paintings are appreciated thanks to the way she paints intangibles. Through precise, powerful and forceful brush marks, she creates alchemic surfaces and she describes immense spaces, turning these abstractions in manifests. Moreover, she has the capacity to convey the power of implied telluric currents and the piercing luminosity of her colors with a lightness of being.
