Featured in Manchester Confidential article on Manchester artists

Really honoured to have been featured in Vicky Smith’s Manchester Confidential article “10 more Manchester artists you need to know about“. She writes:

” If you can say one thing about Emma Lloyd, it’s that she has patience. While the Kent native/adoptive Mancunian works in other materials, it’s perhaps her exquisite paperwork sculptures that she’s best known for. Pages are transformed into ammonites, cell structures and even people under the blade of her scalpel – making tangible the idea of books as otherworldly portals.”

My work appears alongside that of Kate Kelly, Tim Garner, Baiba Auria, Chris Cyprus, Andrew Brooks, Hilary Jack, Len Grant, Gina Kirby and Akinyemi Oludele.

Manchester Confidential: Things to do in February

Really lovely to see my show featured in Manchester Confidential’s “Things to do in February” article. They write:

“Emma Lloyd is best known for transforming familiar objects – particularly books – into breathtaking paper sculptures, but this exhibition sees the talented local artist explore printmaking and other mediums besides with her trademark intricacy. We suggest making an afternoon of it and exploring the gorgeous Salford Museum and Peel Park while you’re there.”

Many thanks for the feature Manchester Confidential!


Article in Bees Blogs

A huge thank you goes out to Brian Wild of Bees Blogs for featuring my new solo show “Beyond the Linear” in his blog. He writes:

“Emma Lloyd is a Manchester based contemporary artist working mainly in text. Emma has exhibited both nationally and internationally, most recently in ‘Art of the Book’ and ‘Summer Salon’ at Seager Gray Gallery in California , ‘The World of Paper Products’ Hanok Village, Jeonju South Korea which featured art in paper from a global list of artists, as well as Belgium and South Africa.

I first came across Emma’s work at Saul Hay Gallery’s exhibition ‘Material Matters‘ in August 2017 and was astounded by the intricacy and attention to detail which formed her work. Her pieces are beautifully constructed textual sculptural artworks, which grabbed the attention of, and delighted, visitors to the exhibition.

For this latest exhibition at Salford Museum and Art Gallery will again be exploring language, visual puzzles and cognitive properties. I’m looking forward to seeing this latest offering from Emma and would recommend you put a date in your diary.”
