His country upbringing, his rural walks to school and a life surrounded by animals which regularly feature in his work make him one of Ireland’s most admired and sought after artists. James Lloyd ‘A Bigger Balloon’ After leaving the Slade in the mid-1990s, James Lloyd made an almost instant reputation as an up-and-coming portrait painter, winning first prize in the 1997 BP Portrait Award (among other things). He has since shown himself to be a good deal more than that: a painter of rich and complex figure pieces, interiors and still- lifes, as his third solo show at Browse & Darby makes very clear. At the core of this show, for example, is the large painting entitled The Wood, a female nude lying on a bed, accompanied by a deer faun and in a woodland setting – full of mythological references it also echoes Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe and pushes its surreality one stage further. This is bold and courageous figurative painting. Nicholas Usherwood
