biography
Fuelled and fired by journeys and explorations, most recently to Scotland and the US, Dion Salvador Lloyd is absorbed by the world around him. These are not plein air paintings drawn directly from natures face, they are layers of experience that have become layers of paint, moment on top of moment, music and sounds intertwined with memory and echoes of places seen or been. We all have this banked up inside of us, a personal history of thoughts and connections which form our footprints through the world. The aim of this work is not to show us postcards of where Dion has been, but to encourage us to explore our own journey, who we are, what we have seen and where we have been. These works are rich with pathos, a power that hair-triggers our senses and puts our hearts on our sleeves. The poignancy we feel is not accidental; Dion has developed a painterly language that talks in poetic tones, colours and marks that build within our minds and persuade our souls. He approaches a blank canvas without a sense of destination but with steps into space, each step suggesting where to tread next. As he paints, his thoughts become as fluid as the marks and movements he makes, carried along by music and led by the hand into the painting, to be lost and found. This is what he wants for his viewer also, the confidence to fall into the painting heart and soul and at the same time to fall into ourselves. In a world where we are transfixed with answers and certainty, he gives us only questions and a sense that the answers are within us, using paintings to draw us into our shared world; global paintings.

Dion’s practice evolves and re-emerges, like the world through a train window. There are patterns and signatures that sink and rise, palettes that shift and repeat, horizons that are fixed and unpicked. He works in purple patches, hot spots, where his stars are aligned; electric and dynamic episodes interspersed with more thoughtful or pensive stages where he is waiting for the paint to show him tracks onwards. Crucial to the finished painting is the bubbling immediacy and direct energy of his painting process; gestures and marks, fingerprints and accidental happenings that celebrate his own natural forces. He applies paint sometimes like a storm, others as soft winds or sunshine, sometimes as snow falls; at once these paintings are opened up, they are all things, each with a unique mystery that hooks us by our imaginations. He paints worlds not as a series of separate or disconnected elements but rather as full of mirrors and relationships which bind itself together; breathing is the wind that blows and the brush that sweeps across the surface, thoughts layer up as songs unfold, sparked by the details from films or by objects found; a tangled world, intricate, complex and full of wonder.
