David Lloyd Artist Talk

Klowden Mann

6023 Washington Blvd, Culver City, 90232

4:00pm to 6:00pm

Klowden Mann is very pleased to present David Lloyd's New Paintings, the Los Angeles-based artist's third solo show at the gallery. Lloyd's new work is a combination of formal abstraction and narrative irreverence. Using materials including acrylic and spray paint, texture paste, collage, graphite and ink, Lloyd presents paintings on raw canvas that build upon his early history as an abstract painter in the 80's while synthesizing the feeling of the pseudo-scientific and spiritual narratives that permeated his most recent work. Here, he has removed all but the smallest narrative moments, with canvases ranging in size from 11 by 14 inches to 7 by 9 feet, and offering brightly colored geometric forms with near-anthropomorphic personality, moving across the raw canvas and accompanied by highly articulated drawn lines and areas of densely textured paint. The exhibition will take place from October 25th through January 10th, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 25th, from 6-8pm.

David Lloyd (b. 1955, Los Angeles, CA) graduated with a BFA from CalArts in 1985, and began his career with solo exhibitions at Margo Leavin Gallery in Los Angeles. His broad exhibition history includes exhibitions at Klowden Mann, Gallery Paule Anglim, the Orange County Museum of Art and the Museum of Art and History in California, as well as Metro Pictures and Milk Gallery in New York, along with many others. His work has been written about extensively, including the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, The Washington Post, Art & Auction, The New York Times, Huffington Post, and Art. Ltd. His work is in private collections internationally, and public collections include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Getty, the Orange County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.

Bullets Over Broadway


5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036


 1994, 98 minutes, color, 35mm | Directed by Woody Allen; written by Allen and Douglas McGrath; with Jim Broadbent, John Cusack, Harvey Fierstein, Chazz Palminteri, Mary-Louise Parker, Rob Reiner, Jennifer Tilly, Tracey Ullman, Joe Viterelli, Jack Warden, Dianne Wiest.

Woody Allen received Academy Award nominations for writing and directing this witty and gorgeously crafted theatrical comedy, which also brought costume designer Jeffrey Kurland a nomination for his authentic creations. John Cusack plays a struggling playwright in 1920s New York who must contend with a tempestuous diva (Dianne Wiest, in her second Oscar-winning performance in a Woody Allen film), the gangster-producer’s untalented girlfriend and her bodyguard (Jennifer Tilly and Chazz Palminteri, both Oscar-nominated). The A-list supporting cast includes Jim Broadbent, Harvey Fierstein, Mary-Louise Parker, Tracey Ullman and Jack Warden, and the end result is one of Allen’s most visually enchanting and laugh-out-loud funny films.

Saul Hernandez

El Rey Theatre

5515 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036


Saúl Hernández creates music that reflects the present and is rooted in the most  telluric past. Performed live, his music is more than a concert: it is a ritual.

As a composer, he has erased geographic and generational boundaries. His songs are part of the soundtrack to the lives of millions of people in Mexico, Latin America, and the United States. People make his songs their own, turning his compositions into shared hymns. His allies (fans), who span several generations, share ideology, dreams, passions.

In April 2012 Saúl began a very unique tour, "The Memory of the Senses: Songs and Roads.” "The idea was to revisit my career as a composer. I had received many requests to explain what I meant by this song or why I wrote that one. We are approaching the songs from the perspective of the composer, something more intimate. It's like coming home and traveling through familiar roads. I'm playing songs from 1987 to 2011. These venues are giving me the opportunity to be closer to people. I am a musician who wants to share part of his life,” he explains regarding the tour.

The tour now continues, a homecoming to those intimate halls and cultural venues that have marked his professional and personal  life. These are energetic and passionate concerts. A "magical mystery tour” through the music, as he describes it and as evidenced by the powerful and emotional concerts in Sala Nezahuacóyotl, el Museo del Chopo, el Centro de las artes del Parque Fundidora en Monterrey, Puebla, León, Chicago, Nueva York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Anaheim.
