Lloyd Durling - Before An Open Window
Lloyd is based in London and his practice is painting-based. His first international solo show was in 2010 at Golden in Chicago and he has exhibited widely throughout Europe, Asia and the US. In 2017 he was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. Lloyd's works are held in public and private collections worldwide, including the Whitworth Art Gallery and Museum, Progressive collection, America and Nomura Bank, Japan.
Central to Lloyd’s current body of work is an intense engagement with oil stick, oil pastel and graphite that explores the interface between painting, drawing and collage. These materials are used as the ground for a series of paintings where texture is as important as colour in the play between the surfaces of paper and the various densities of paint. The idea of topography is central to the work and is explored through continuing walking projects. These serve as opportunities to gather diverse source material through physical and emotional interactions with the environment. This gathering of information during urban and rural wandering feeds into a deep connection with landscape, arrangements of ancient monuments, light, shadow and forgotten histories. All of these elements find a way into Lloyd’s work.
