Lloyd has a holistic approach to developing artwork. Everything is interwoven: an ongoing evolution of thoughts and societal observations.
Through a range of media, she probes the nature of communication, assesses how we comprehend and interrogates the accessibility of our chosen methods of sharing.
Investigating feelings of voicelessness and associated frustrations, she presents language through a divergent lens. This disconnect manifests itself through the reversal and disruption of processes, along with the degradation of structures, patterns or systems of organisation. Letters become fragmented, stripped of their meaning and power.
Drawn to materials promoting curiosity, Lloyd entices the viewer with tactile mediums, or employs objects and substances with a sensory memory attached. Often, she likes to form an automatic connection from prior experience. This could be through a recognisable structure or knowledge of a material’s behaviour and connotations.
Much of her work has an element of physicality to it. Repetitive movements, actions and processes are exploratory and as much about communication as they are meditative or therapeutic. In this respect she highlights the meaning in materials. It could even be posited that the media is more crucial to communication than the language used as the premise (despite both playing a part).
