The Beauty of Rain & Other Cherished Observations04 Aug 2016 - 03 Sep 2016
We are delighted to present Michael Lloyd’s The Beauty of Rain and Other Cherished Observations. We have waited six years for this exhibition and what Michael has achieved is twelve unique masterpieces; skilfully crafted and carefully considered works inspired by the natural setting of his home in Dumfries & Galloway, where he lives and works with his artist wife Mary. Michael Lloyd's is a life dedicated to the fine art of silversmithing. To create this body of work, a queue of commissions was gently placed to one side so that he could focus all his imagination exploring new ideas. There is subtle abstraction, flora and fauna translated into repeating pattern and a celebration and love of nature are present in every piece.
