Lotus Lobo’s artistic practice is deeply identified with the technical, but also experimental, repertoire of Lithography, also contemplating the rescue and preservation of the language’s memory of engraving in Minas Gerais.
Her research is characterized by the diverse use of supports and procedures extracted from the lithographic process, her technical-expressive capacity, which manifests itself as an important material and conceptual contribution for the sedimentation of the authorial language. Such investigation opens with the appropriation and reframing of industrial lithographic marks, goes through the experimentation of different bases (stone, paper, plastic, acrylic and tinplate), culminating in the intervention and re-reading of the marks (the annotations).
In the course of this vast production, Lotus Lobo constituted an important collection of lithographic stones, zinc matrices and tinplate packaging from Estamparia Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais, between 1930–1960. On these supports, drawings of old brands of food products are presented: butter, candies, cookies, tobacco and lard. Such collection served, significantly, as an iconographic repertoire in the production of works from different periods of her artistic trajectory. Such experiences, inaugurated in the 1970’s, were seminal in the discursive construction of the artist and still reverberate in her contemporary production.
In her artistic career, her participation at the 10th São Paulo Biennial  deserves to be highlighted, when she receives the Itamaraty Award for exhibiting three objects-engravings manipulable by the public and, also, in the emblematic exhibition “Do Corpo à Terra”, organized by the critic Frederico Morais, which took place at the Belo Horizonte Municipal Park .
