MARCH 4, 2017 David Lloyd, New Work
Born in the state of Virginia, David Lloyd now lives and works in Houston, Texas. He garnered a broad Liberal Arts education while attending the University of Houston on scholarship. While his technical training in art has been mostly self-taught, his interest in the disciplines of Theatre, Philosophy, and Literature, has complemented his artistic direction. Unaffected by stylistic trends, Lloyd has explored various techniques in numerous media. Working across genres, he produces both traditional and experimental pieces, as he strives to cultivate progressive and imaginative applications of his craft: Tradition and innovation are of equal interest to me, regarding both materials and technique. I therefore produce figurative, abstract, surreal, and expressionistic pieces, working in oil, acrylic, ink, and watercolor on a variety of supports.
Currently, Lloyd has been painting in acrylics on linen, canvas, board, and paper, managing to keep the fluid painterly style characteristic of oil. For still life compositions, he will work from life; for interiors, from photographs. I rarely develop major work based on sketches…I love sketches for what they are and consider them finished work in their own right. For major works, I just dive right in. He combines solid traditional technique with a contemporary sensibility, yielding a style that is both modern and timeless.
His work can be found in private collections in various cities including New Orleans, Washington D.C., San Francisco, New York, Atlanta and many others across the United States.
