Island Garden Border VI is an original oil painting by Dylan Lloyd. Lloyd’s decision to contrast the level of focus on the flowers in the foreground draws you in when looking at the piece.
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.
