Maria Lloyd - ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
I am fascinated by ancient civilisations, their cultures and how they created ceremonial art forms and objects to distinguish themselves and document their histories. By unravelling their mysteries we inevitably learn more about ourselves.
Through cross-cultural exploration of our origins, our ancestors and the land, I seek to replicate that sense of wonder and mystery. I have a deep respect for artistic traditions which reflects in my work through beading, sewing, carving and bronze work.
The graphic and narrative nature of my work is an outflow of my formal graphic design background and the use of symbolism creates a universal language. I am hands-on and create all my work in my foundry on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. My sculptures have found homes locally and internationally.
