Reflections | Michael Lloyd at 70 | Part Three

03 Jun 2020

This June we celebrate Michael Lloyd’s 70th birthday with a collection of new work; each a love letter to the flora and fauna that continues to inspire his work. Explore Reflections | Michael Lloyd at 70 and discover his new collection online. We have also produced a series of blogs with imagery, film, music and words from Michael Lloyd himself.

Please enjoy part three where Michael discusses his inspiration and introduces us to one of the seven pieces created for this exhibition - the Dove Bowl.

Beware my simple feathered friend, I hear your purring soporific lullaby of courtship, away with care, sweet summertime is here. Be not deceived, the Peregrine above has no appetite for your gentle song of love.
