Dab Art Co. is pleased to announce IN THE COURT OF THE EASTER QUEEN, a solo exhibition of works from Los Angeles based artist Terri Lloyd.

The exhibition features nine works from the Easter Queen series. Included are photos I used to abstract the stories I have told. If nothing else, it’s fun just to see the old imagery.

The exhibit runs March 6 through June 30, 2021.
Artist talk in May, TBA.

Working Hands, Working Together

When I started painting with my other hand, I knew the day would come when there would be a convergence of both hands. The paintings above are the beginning of that journey which is a journey of distillation and memory along with the examination of familial dynamics that haunt me today.

I refuse to call this art therapy, and I won’t allow you to call it that, either. It’s not. It’s more psychoanalysis than art therapy.

Camino Encanto is the first painting, and is on paper. Not quite having the courage or confidence to move right on to canvas, paper was the appropriate media for the initial experiment. Immediately, the response to this new approach was incredibly positive, and I felt that I could trust myself and my processes and both my hands.

There is a conversation I have with myself regarding this new direction, “Who’s the artist?” “I am.” “Then paint it however you like.”

I’m digging this liberation.

New work and direction

Art, art brute, pop art
Freedom Over Conformity, © 2019 Terri Lloyd
Utopia Is In The Backyard, © 2019 Terri Lloyd

Working in a sort of hybrid manner combining drawing with painting in a simplified, unapologetic graphic manner while exploring what it means to live in an anarchist utopia, according to my cats.

The works are on canvas, 24″ x 36″. Other manifestations soon to come. Stay tuned.
