Artwork by Mary Lloyd Jones.
Following a recent study-trip to Turtle Island, investigations into Native American art have reaffirmed Mary Lloyd Jones’s life-long interest in ancestory. Throughout her illustrious career, Mary has remained fundamentally an expressive artist, preoccupied with how landscape language and history define our sense of self.
Using paint, digital media or textiles, her tirelessly exploratory eye remains as vivid as ever. For this exhibition, Mary Lloyd Jones returns to the use of fabric and dye, creating intense, abstract colour-field banners that reference the textiles of both Wales and the Americas.
