About this work of Art
Coastal Summer Garden VIII 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.”
