The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
David Lloyd's New Paintings opens at Klowden Mann gallery in Culver City this Saturday, October 25. Lloyd is a Los Angeles-based artist, and his new work is a combination of "formal abstraction and narrative irreverence." The piece over there on the left is entitled "A Fundamental Force." The opening reception with the artist is Saturday from 6 to 8 pm -- and is, as always, free and open to the public.
Continues the gallery's web site:
Using materials including acrylic and spray paint, texture paste, collage, graphite and ink, Lloyd presents paintings on raw canvas that build upon his early history as an abstract painter in the 80's while synthesizing the feeling of the pseudo-scientific and spiritual narratives that permeated his most recent work. Here, he has removed all but the smallest narrative moments, with canvases ranging in size from 11 by 14 inches to 7 by 9 feet, and offering brightly colored geometric forms with near-anthropomorphic personality, moving across the raw canvas and accompanied by highly articulated drawn lines and areas of densely textured paint.
The show will be up through January 10th. Klowden Mann is located at 6023 Washington Blvd.
