Lois Andison is a sculptor/installation artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Her art practice ranges from kinetic sculpture where she uses movement to initiate an experience/exchange between the viewer and the work, through video and photography which she uses to document and interpret both time and motion.
The latter approach can be seen in her yearlong timelapse of an urban garden and through her motion studies that are observations of the still and the moving. Her sculptural works address the mediated body and the performative and often involve an element of humor. Lately, her conceptual interests in language as a medium, and kinetic type as movement, have led to her incorporate text in her sculptures. Lois has exhibited nationally and internationally including such cities as Mexico City, Boston, New York, Montreal, Lethbridge, and Buffalo. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards and her work is part of both private and corporate collections. She is represented by the Olga Korper Gallery, Toronto, and Art Mûr, Montreal.
Lois is currently an Associate Professor in the Fine Arts Department of the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario where she teaches courses in sculpture and digital imaging.
