Kristina Lloyd earned her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C., and has taken additional art classes at the Center for Contemporary Art, Farmstead Arts, the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, Watchung Arts Gallery, the University of Colorado, and Montclair State University. In addition to working with acrylics as a full-time artist, she works in photography as well. Lloyd creates loud expression through the combination of whimsical, abstract shapes and rich colors. She has created works that have been commissioned, are in private collections, and have been featured on Cablevision, in print media, and online.
Kristina’s paintings and photographs capture the intimate and infinitesimal details that viewers take for granted. By paying such close attention to these small but vital elements of ordinary objects, they suddenly become extraordinary. Her photograph “Liquified Dew” shows the artist’s interest in high contrasting light and dark shades that really emphasize the movement and the presence of the water. The shapes and reflections created by the dew on multiple surfaces of the flowers create intense and complex geometric shapes in an almost crystal-like formation. Kristina’s work, though varying in medium and style, do not lose the essence of her artistic vision, which is help the viewer to realize that there is more than meets the eye.
