American artist Lloyd Martin is known internationally for his rhythmically constructed abstract painting. Throughout his career, he has explored the architectural environment around his studio, and his paintings reveal a framework and structure that reference a stark architecture. Although clearly abstract, Martin's paintings are still grounded in the real world. This architectural structure gives the work a sense of gravity, giving weight to his flights of vibrant color.


Lloyd Martin is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. His work has been reviewed in numerous publications, including The New York Times, ARTNews, Art In America, and NY Arts Magazine. He is the recipient of numerous fellowships in painting as well as two in drawing, revealing his heightened awareness of line and form. That skill is evident in his Landfall Press series of prints in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
