Tony Lloyd

Artist Profile - - FRONT PAGE - STORY KENT WILSON PHO­TOG­RA­PHY SAM MIKKELSEN

Propul­sion sits at the heart of Tony Lloyd’s most re­cent suite of paint­ings, an apt force un­der­ly­ing both the con­tent of his art and the tra­jec­tory of his ca­reer. Moun­tains rise into the clear blue sky, ma­jes­tic and con­fi­dent in their tec­tonic el­e­va­tion, inch­ing in­ex­orably up­ward with sus­tained ge­o­log­i­cal mo­men­tum. Road­ways wind and stretch out be­fore us, pulling us for­ward with a grav­i­ta­tional force. And so too, Lloyd’s own place on the land­scape of con­tem­po­rary Aus­tralian art rises on the back of a con­sis­tently de­vel­op­ing body of work that nav­i­gates its way through some very cap­ti­vat­ing ter­rain.
