Coastal Summer Garden VII by Dylan Lloyd.
A 100cm x 80cm oil painting on canvas, sold unframed.

“The Dorset summer garden paintings are a response partly to my emerging garden on the Isle of Portland
planted a year ago and elements of gardens I have visited this year. They are not topographical responses but
contain plant combinations that create depth and contrasts in softness, tone and colour. The space that the
change in focus creates is important, giving a feeling of both looking out onto a garden as well as suggesting the view through a camera lens and a desire to record a memory. The balance between a suggestion of a
photographic image and the painterly surface allows the work to be seen in two contrasting ways but
importantly they are paintings and the ‘painterly’ brush marked surface confirms this.”

Size: H:100 cm x W:80 cm

Dylan Lloyd has original paintings for sale online with Wychwood Art and in their Deddington Art Gallery. Dylan Lloyd was born in Gravesend, Kent in 1972 and studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art. His studio and garden are located on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. Garden’s have been the major focus for his work for 15 years. His paintings are a documentation of growth, change and development of the direct world around him. Their connection with photography is important; the exaggerated depth of field and pixilated elements of the work are reminiscent of photography and carry associations with the recording of time and history. The seemingly exaggerated photographic surface is balanced with a painterly response that suggest a lasting memory of a place rather than merely direct representation. Dylan’s interest in gardens and plants extend to design, film and photography and he has produced work in response to his own garden as well as other contemporary and traditional gardens across the south of England and northern France.
