March 25 – April 26, 2023
William Campbell Gallery is pleased to present a solo show of Lloyd Martin’s newest collection of 15, vibrant, and evolved paintings. William Campbell Gallery has been showing Lloyd’s work for many years. This newest series of works will debut in the show Intonate Schemes at the gallery’s Foch Street location in Fort Worth’s Foundry District. The paintings are executed in vivid colors, and compositions are laid out in a complex, undulating geometric, yet organic flow. His works maintain the identifiable translucent “under-color which are the ghosts of the central image” says Martin. These lines exude his unique tracing and translucent methodology. Lloyd describes these works as a compilation of the evolution of his work and is the result of his continuous process.
Martin is based in Providence, Rhode Island. His work has been exhibited and reviewed by Art in America magazine, ARTnews magazine, ELLE Décor magazine, several reviews in The New York Times and The Sun, Artful Circle, and Huffington Post to name a few. His art is described in reviews as architectural, painterly, and colorful. This connects with the impetus of Martin’s work, which he states was inspired by the surroundings of his studio, the industrial building, and the impacts of the deterioration of mother nature’s impact. Over the years his colors have evolved to a more synthetic tone, and the evolution to this current palate was an organic process, it all happens in his studio, with paint.
The exhibition’s opening reception will take place the same night as Fort Worth Art Dealers Association, Spring Gallery night on March 25, 2023, from 5 pm – 8 pm at William Campbell Gallery, 217 Foch Street, Fort Worth, TX 76107. The show will run through April 29, 2023.
