Elizabeth Jane Lloyd (1928-1995) – The Glory of the Year

30 Apr 10:00 AM 12 May 4:00 PM

Oxmarket Contemporary will display a collection of work by Elizabeth Jane Loyd (1928-1995) in the Wilson Gallery. A colourist in the grand English tradition, her bold brushstrokes lay together to build dappled images in oils of luminous flowers against subtle ceramic and soft fabrics. She was a contemporary of Mary Fedden and Julian Trevelyan, and her vibrant still lifes and landscapes echo with the melodies of Cezanne and the post impressionists.

Loyd’s talents sprung up from an artistic family and were later honed in the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Much of her life was spent teaching, both from her studio and in various institutions, including at Central St Martin’s, the Cambridge School of Art and a number of others. Alongside this, and raising her four children, she produced a body of work that marries a sophisticated mastery of colour with a sense play – breathing an expansive feeling of life into each painting.
