  • 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)

  • 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.

  • Fleeting Essence

    £565

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A brilliantly executed mid-century figurative abstract composition, painted in oil onto board and dated 1967 on reverse.

    Abstract in nature, the composition features the silhouettes of three discernible figures, delicately outlined partially in thin emerald lines, and set against a warm yellow backdrop.

    The artist skillfully executes layers of yellow and grey and splashes of colour, and the overall colour effect and textural quality evoke a sense of transience and contribute to the melancholic ambiance.

    This oil on board is housed in a complementary wood frame with an inner linen border. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The frame has slight widening to its bottom left joint but this has been previously stabilised.

  • The Peach

    £485

    Available

    Free shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    A bold and visually striking mini geometric abstract painting, executed in acrylic onto canvas and dated 2019.

    Small yet very impactful in its composition, the painting boldly explores the interplay of geometric shapes and the allure of rich and saturated colours.

    The canvas comes alive as it presents a visual and rhythmic dance of forms in different shapes and sizes. Each shape has been meticulously rendered and thoughtfully coloured so that they harmonise well together to create a delicate balance between order and chaos.

  • Assembly

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but punchy mid century abstract modernist composition in oil, painted in 1957.

    This playful painting features an assembly of forms, generous paint application, and a myriad of colours. This painterly piece has several areas of impasto (where the paint stands proud from the surface), creating depth and texture. Its abstract composition makes it an easy fit into any interior, and the vivid colour palette will add interest and delight to any wall or shelf.

    It is also housed in a very unique wood frame, which sets off the painting beautifully. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Blue Waters

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but very impactful abstract modernist oil composition, painted onto board.

    Although very much abstract, the painting is reminiscent of the qualities of water – its flowing nature, its sparkling and dappled reflections, and even its undercurrents. This interpretation is of course subjective but at its very essence, the composition captures a feeling of motion, transience and dynamism. The artist juxtaposes broad sweeping brushwork with much more controlled and defined dots of paint. The palette of colours interplay wonderfully with each other, encouraging our eyes to move in different directions and explore different areas of the composition.

    This oil on board is housed in a very attractive wood frame with an inner linen lined border. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Abstract in Blue

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small yet very impactful mixed media composition with abstract qualities.

    Painted in a semi-abstract manner and with a strong focus on colour and brushwork, we can perhaps make out what appears to be three figures crossing a bridge over a body of water.

    Although the artist has worked with a restrained colour palette, the intense use of blue that takes up the centre of the painting is the most prominent colour that commands our attention.

    Long sweeping brushstrokes have been rhythmically executed, and overall the painting is very well balanced and evokes a very satisfying sense of calm.

    This is a mixed media on board, consisting pastel, gouache, watercolour and oil. Both the painting and frame are both in very good vintage condition. The painting is housed behind glass.

  • Sitting Still

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A brilliantly executed miniature semi-abstract portrait in oil, by the established Swedish artist Ivar Morsing (1919-2009), whose works have been exhibited in public collections including the National Museum in Stockholm, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Kalmar Museum, and Jönköping Museum.

    In this composition a lone figure is seated by a wall, with his or her features obscured. The figure’s body perceptible only through carefully applied brushstrokes which hint at its structure. There is a poignant quietness to this picture- its impact almost enhanced by its small size – encouraging us to peer closely and take in all the details.

    The painting is housed in a simple but very effective gilt frame, which illuminates the painting and brings out its warm colours. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Tête-à-Tête

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A brilliantly executed abstract figurative oil composition painted by the established Swedish artist Ivar Morsing (1919-2009), whose works have been exhibited in public collections including the National Museum in Stockholm, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Kalmar Museum, and Jönköping Museum.

    Small yet impactful in its composition, the painting brings our attention to two figures seated by a wall, seemingly in conversation. Abstract in nature, the figures and their surroundings have been reduced down to short brushstrokes and colour.

    The expressive dabs and small swirls evoke a sense of movement and dynamism, and the dominant use of brown tones in subtle variations creates a warm and earthy atmosphere, and also helps to create depth and three-dimensionality to the painting.

    This oil on board is housed in a complementary wide profile gilt frame that pairs well and illuminates the painting. Both the painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Fields of Blue

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A captivating abstract landscape composition, executed in oil onto canvas, and dated 1999 on reverse.

    The painting presents a vast and expanse field with some blue houses in the horizon, and executed in a semi-abstract manner, all realistic details have been omitted.

    The painting is characterised by its rich texture, as well as the use of an intentionally limited yet rich colour palette comprising varying shades of blue predominately.

    The artist has worked with the paint dynamically, skilfully applying it on the canvas through the use of a palette knife and using the impasto technique. This not only creates a smooth and creamy texture, but the beautiful layering and blending of colours add an element of interest as well as demonstrate a sense of depth to the painting.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim white frame. The painting is in excellent vintage condition, and the frame has minor paint loss.

  • Waves in Motion

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A dynamic and beautifully textured mid-century painting of an atmospheric seascape, executed in oil onto canvas.

    Small yet impactful in its composition, the canvas is dominated by a vast expanse of waves in an ocean under a grey sky. The overall colour palette is subdued, featuring shades of white and various hues of grey,  lavender purple and green that have a soothing quality.

    Containing elements of impressionism and abstraction, the artist has swiftly applied loose and expressive brushstrokes to capture the swirling, frothy waves during this fleeting atmospheric condition. Each stroke seems to ripple and dance across the canvas, creating a sense of movement within the water.

    Using the impasto technique, the thick and creamy texture of the brushwork gives the waves a tactile as well as aesthetically captivating presence.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim silver frame. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Towards the Sea

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small and restful abstract painting that explores a harmonious interplay of colours and tones, executed in oil onto canvas.

    The middle and foreground of the composition are delicately painted in a soothing beige hue, while the background emerges in a captivating khaki green.

    The choice of beige resembles sand, and this dominant colour evokes a sense of tranquillity and simplicity, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in a serene atmosphere.

    Contrasting against the beige expanse, a dark grey background adds depth and intrigue to the artwork. Resembling the sea, this dark and muted shade introduces an element of mystery and the unknown. As our eyes wander towards this background, the viewer is invited to delve into this unexplored area that lies beyond the tranquil foreground.

    Simple yet effective in its composition, the painting serves as a reminder that beauty can be found everywhere – in the simple and in the unknown.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a complementary slim wood frame. Both the frame and painting are in excellent vintage condition.

  • Alabaster

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A small but very visually pleasing mid century abstract composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Using a careful selection of pastel colours, the subtle palette is delightfully calming. The small size of the painting draws our eyes in, encouraging us to study the tonal gradations in the colours, as well as enjoy the various textures of the creamy paint.

    This oil on canvas is housed in a painted wooden frame, the colour of which complements the painting perfectly. There is some light craquelure present to the painting, due to the age and thickness of the paint application, but the paint layer is very stable. Overall the painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

  • Boat in Port

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A very well executed mid century semi abstract composition in oil, painted onto canvas.

    Here we see a boat docked in front of a building, but the artist has chosen to focus on formal qualities such as form, shape, line and colour. Working under a distinctly modernist ethos, the artist has very cleverly reduced the scene down to flat planes of colour, creating a cubist, geometric effect in the composition, bringing our attention to the fact that this is indeed a painting on a surface, shaped by the artist’s own view and perception, as opposed to a realistic depiction of a boat by a shed. Yet details like the stillness of the water, the reflection of the boat, and the structures involved are still so masterfully captured.

    This oil painting is housed in a very well suited gilt frame. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition.

    An expressive abstract modernist oil on board, painted in 1967.

    This modernist oil features large and sweeping gestural brushstrokes, and the impression of spontaneity. There is a sense of an outpouring of emotion, and we can visualise the artist’s hand dancing around the picture, creating layers of dynamic marks on the surface.

    The painting is housed in a simple white frame. Both painting and frame are in very good vintage condition. The frame has some very minor scuffs but this does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the piece.

    Size: 36 x 29 cm (including frame)

  • Magpies

    Sold

    SOLD.

    A fun and striking mid-century semi abstract modernist composition of magpies, executed in oil onto board.

    The painting depicts three magpies in nature, standing on a tree branch and surrounded by green leaves.

    Containing elements of cubism and abstraction, the artist has fragmented this composition down to shapes of contrasting colours and sizes using a rich and lively palette. Not only has he skilfully created an appearance of a stained glass window, but he has also created a sense of three-dimensionality in the way the respective colours are paired and  contrasted together.

    This painting is housed in a wood frame with an inner linen lined border. There is some slight wear to the paint surface on the artwork, but this is commensurate with age and does not detract from its overall attractiveness. There is a small loss to the lower left section of the frame, as shown in close ups.

    Size: 34 x 35cm (including frame)

  • Afternoon in Linen

    Sold

    SOLD.

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

    A play on texture, form, shape and line create this very satisfying pattered abstract. The tactility of the linen panel really enhances its raw, textured effect.

    Both painting and frame are in excellent condition.
