Lloyd Hamrol

1937 -

Show Artists Bio

Lloyd Hamrol (1937 - ) was born in San Francisco, Ca.  He received his B.A. and M.A. degrees from UCLA.  He is well known for his decades long production of sited works in which he helped chart the sculptural territory between landscape architecture and architectural space with both monumental and intimate gestures.
 
These projects were commissioned for university and corporate campuses as well as civic and residential spaces including Caltech, University of Iowa, City of Monterey, Staples Center and others.  His “Twenty-One Stones”(1985) can be seen at Exposition Park, along Exposition Boulevard in Los Angeles.  “Uptown Rocker” addresses both vehicular and pedestrian audiences on 4th Street in downtown Los Angeles.

Hamrol’s recent sculptures made of industrial felt integrate the directness of drawing with dimensional form building, not unlike working with clay or wax.  Ranging in size from hand-held to free standing, these works reflect the artist’s continuing exploration of scale. Made by knotting, twisting and wrapping lengths of thick felt, the work conjures biomorphic and architectural associations.

Recapitulating his much earlier work with temporary installations, Hamrol’s “Situational Construction for Pomona College” (1969) was remounted in 2011 at the college gallery as part of the Getty’s “Pacific Standard Time” exhibition.
