This event has ended.

Y Gallery presents “Free Hand Flow”, an exhibition of works from the late sixties and early seventies by American painter Elliott Lloyd. This is the second part of a larger project commemorating the artist’s artistic career spanning over forty years. In January 2014, Y Gallery presented “Near to Far”, the first half of this program with a selection of Lloyd’s new paintings from 2012 and 2013, transforming Lloyd’s impressionistic influences into phenomenal experiments with perception and perspective,
“Free Hand Flow” associates directly with an artist that is trained in figurative painting and watercolors yet prefers a downbeat range of color, organized in overlapping transparencies. It is comprised of color painting where the general handling of color is often delicate and poetic. “Free Hand Flow” derives from a time moments of experimentation stimulating reactive results from the use of new materials and both the additions and reductions of paint application.

Elliott Lloyd was born in Sioux City, Iowa in 1937 and moved to New York in 1961. He attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
