        Artist Biography

A graduate of Monash University, Melbourne, Merryn Lloyd's works are characterised by her manipulation of pigment and beeswax on board. Her practice is concerned with the gaps in seeing and perceiving, and the gaps in art-making itself. Lloyd’s works emerge from process, with the making being the conceptual motivator that drives her practice. She is interested in the in-between-ness of painting, setting up loose parameters within which the works can unfold. The paintings seem to search around themselves for their forms and expression, searching out spaces and associations.
        Merryn Lloyd recently moved to Canberra after years of living and working in Melbourne and London. Lloyd has exhibited widely in her career and her work is held in a number of private and public collections. Her solo exhibitions include ‘Hot mess paintings’ (2017) Dianne Singer Gallery, ‘Oil on a Spoon’ (2014) Utopian Slumps and ‘Slide’ (2011) at Gertrude Contemporary. She has been selected for numerous group exhibitions at galleries including Utopian Slumps, Caves, Diane Singer and Shepperton Art Gallery. Merryn Lloyd had her first exhibition with Tributary in 2017 with her solo show ‘Invisible labour’ and was later included in the group show ‘Always slipping away’ curated by Grace Blake.
