Jonathan Lloyd > Hand-Held Skies

NOTES...
Jonathan Lloyd is 22. He is indicative of a new generation of filmmakers who use combinations of analogue and digital media. Lloyd's films are all of sunsets and he is not afraid to display projections of spectacular and ravishing beauty. He lives and works from Blackpool, a town on Lancashire's Fylde Coast. "Facing West over the Atlantic we get the most glorious sunsets here. When I found Turner's work, I realised we have a forgotten British tradition of sensual, romantic image-making which also has many other resonances. Turner's painting prefigured Impressionism and led the way toward abstraction. He operated at a pivotal moment between two eras, romantic and technological and captured that all in a universal image. I think he's one of the most significant artists in history. All this connected with my own work when I discovered that he painted from this same coastline. Then I realised we're now at another pivotal point in history. Later, reading that these spectacular sunsets are partly a result of dust and atmospheric pollution drifting out to sea, only enhanced their resonance and poignancy for me. I want to promote a sensual / intellectual engagement with both image and medium. Turner used oil paint and I'm using media appropriate to my time - Super 8mm film, fixed by being digitised. Luscious stuff - project it big and you get techno Turner, Hollywood Monet - and it all moves. Huge projections of abstracted colour and light."
