Nelson artist, Lloyd Harwood’s work is notable for it’s simplicity of form and intensity of hue. This along with a strong sense of composition, has allowed him to develop a personal and recognisable style.
Responding to nearly all and everything that surrounds him, Lloyd often draws inspiration from myth and cross cultural symbolism. Underlying the work thematically is his personal celebration of both the childlike wonder and the often adult folly of being human which sees him revelling in the areas of satire and paradox.
His work appeals and works on varying conceptual levels and has often been described as both ‘affable and sardonic’. Having multiple entry levels allows wide accessibility and perhaps partly accounts for the fact that he is collected by people of varying ages and different walks of life from around the world.
Lloyd continues to explore painting avenues beyond his signature bright coloured work and has introduced varied sculptural pieces to his exhibitions with us at RED ‘ The Black Hare and Other Curiosities’, ‘ Dusting Off The Lares’ and ‘Miscellanea’.
Lloyd’s latest exhibition ‘Hubble Bubble’ is a series of paintings and sculpture created at his home studio during New Zealand’s lockdown. Running from 7th - 29th August 2020.
