Dylan Lloyd lives and works in Wimborne with a studio and home on the Isle of Portland - a local boy through and through!
The garden paintings expanded to incorporate the current interest in the first half of the 20th Century and its effect on a number of areas of contemporary design from ceramics to textiles, interior design and book covers. References to the past are seen alongside personal ones to create a sense of nostalgia and memory. The pixilated surface with exaggerated depth of field in many of the paintings pays homage to their origins as photographic documentation.
Dylan explains "I would like the work to be viewed as a glimpse into the recent past and to evoke feelings of nostalgia but I also want it to show simplicity and personal values. As we look back at our recent history a yearning for a simple life has become attractive and desirable."
