FIERCE focuses on the struggle to find courage to continue. The artist’s strategy in this work is to visualize not the pain, but the inspiration to fight it. When creating these images, Lloyd moves them through the halves of her brain much like the blood moves through the heart.
Sue Lloyd is a Toronto-based artist working with lens-based and hand-made images, using elements that are her own as well as other people’s. She is interested in visual imagery as text, icon and vocabulary. She recombines pictorial elements to make sentences and to communicate thoughts. Lloyd is fascinated by how pictures are simultaneously silent and deeply articulate.
