  • Set of 4 Oils

    £1,100

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but powerful set of abstract compositions by British contemporary artist Lloyd Durling, painted with oil onto linen panel. Each one signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    Central to these paintings are an intense engagement with oil stick and graphite on linen that explore the interface between painting, drawing and collage. There is a balance between expressive play and tight control and with this comes an expanse of associations that push beyond simple categorisations of abstraction or scale. The information in each painting, given by gesture or mark, is reduced to a fleeting register on the surface, as if each mark has to count. 

    All paintings and frames in excellent condition. Each one of these is a one-off unique hand painted piece, so the set of 4 will be available until any one of the pieces is purchased individually. If you prefer to buy an individual piece, you can do so here.

    Lloyd Durling is a British artist working in London. His practice is painting-based and he has exhibited widely throughout Europe, U.S.A and Asia. In 2017 he was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. Works are held in both public and private collections worldwide.

    Size: Each one measures 15 x 20 cm (including frame)

  • Desert Lands

    £395

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very well executed mid century modernist landscape composition, painted in oil onto canvas board.

    This painting features warm earthy tones, carefully applied brushwork and a contrast of angular forms against softer curved forms. The sandy, desert tones are punctuated by areas of dark brown and green, creating great depth and intensity to the picture. Our eyes are initially drawn to the bold, angular planes in the foreground, but are then lead away into the softer rolling sands of the background. In the distance the horizon is broken up by a row of monuments.

    The palette and subject of this painting makes it highly versatile. It is familiar yet we can’t quite pinpoint a particular place, lending a timelessness to this piece.

    This oil on canvas board is presented in a gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Tulips in Pastel

    £370

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A very elegant mid century modernist floral oil composition, painted onto canvas.

    In this floral piece we have light pink tulips in a blue vase, painted in an expressionist style. Broad, gestural brushstrokes in  a range of soft, pastel colours make up this composition. The flowers and vase is set against a background of light blue and pink, which transitions into a richer blue as we move down the canvas. There is a wonderful diaphanous quality to this painting which is really easy on the eye. Floral pieces like these have a timelessness to them which make them in an easy fit in many interior settings. The lightness to this one would certainly uplift the mood of a space.

    The painting is housed in a very well suited frame with a linen lined border as well as an inner gilt border which illuminates the painting wonderfully. The painting is in very good vintage condition. The frame has some minor age wear.

  • Conjuring Blue

    £300

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A small but powerful abstract composition by British contemporary artist Lloyd Durling, painted in oil onto linen panel. Signed, titled and dated on reverse.

    Central to this painting is an intense engagement with oil on linen that explore the interface between painting, drawing and collage. There is a balance between expressive play and tight control and with this comes an expanse of associations that push beyond simple categorisations of abstraction or scale. The information in each painting, given by gesture or mark, is reduced to a fleeting register on the surface, as if each mark has to count. 

    The idea of topography is of central importance and is explored through continuing walking projects. These serve as opportunities to gather diverse source material through physical and emotional interactions with whichever environment chosen to traverse. It amounts to a kind of urban and rural wandering where the information gathered is reinterpreted or reimagined feeding into a deep connection with landscape, arrangements of ancient monuments, light, shadow and forgotten histories – all of these elements find a way into the work.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.

    Size: 15 x 20 cm (including frame)

    Double Sided Portrait I

    £165

    Available

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    An intriguing double sided oil on board:  one side depicts a pair of women looking into a book, and the other side features a striking single portrait of a woman.

    The painting of the two ladies with the book is very textured, with multi directional and distinct brushstrokes creating a very dynamic and layered image. On the other side, the portrait of the woman is smoother in texture overall, but still has a very three dimensional effect. The woman has an air of mystery about her, leaving us wondering what she might be thinking about.

    Painted onto board, both paintings are in very good vintage condition and can be displayed on either side. There is some slight paint loss to the very edges of the board but certainly does not detract from the overall charm of either picture. It could be displayed in its current state on an easel or leant against a shelf.

    A lovely and endearing miniature oil on canvas depicting a scene of a pedestrian walkway on a fine summer’s day.

    A woman in the foreground can be seen walking with her 2 children to drop them off at school. They are holding flowers in their hands, that they’ve picked along their journey.

    Rich and saturated colours fill this energetic painting; and the short and textured brushstrokes imbue the work with a sense of liveliness and joy.

    What’s special too is that the artist has uniquely enhanced the greenery portion by adding graphite detailing in a ‘scribbled’ manner, adding a sense of three-dimensionality to the trees.

    The painting is housed in a white card mount, and a green stained wood frame with a blue and gold inner wood border. The colours of the frame pick up on the colours within the painting beautifully, making it stand out even more. The work is glazed (there is a layer of plexiglass between the frame and the painting) to ensure its longevity.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 32 x 25.5 cm (including frame)
