Lydia's work engages with the seen and the unseen. Surfaces and experiences are both manipulated by her peices, through which the veiwer is encouraged to have a heightened awareness of themselves and their surroundings. Her works explore landscapes that are both physical and metaphorical. Much of Boss's art is an exploration of the world, as seen through it's reflections.
