collection JOE and ANN MARIE MALONE Portland ME
A list of my comings and goings from 1982 thru 1987.
I had relocated myself to Bangor ME in December 1982, after having taught the Fall Semester at CORNELL U in Ithaca NY . At that time, I was living w my parents at their house in Brewer Me . I immediately rented studio space for myself in downtown Bangor . On a daily basis, I would cross over the Penobscot River from Brewer on foot to work at my studio,which was located over a bagel shop in downtown Bangor.
From the outset, the dual motif of WINDOW and WORKTABLE has been present in my work. Note th WINDOW as source of light and inspiration for whatever would be accomplished upon th WORKTABLE.

This rendering, an ink drawing, was made by my father, George O. Lloyd, architect, most probably in 1984.It depicts th former LEVINSKY'S clothing store., where I had obtained my first day job in Portland as a retail clerk . I lasted for over a year at LEVINSKY'S , until I began to work as a draftsman at my brother David's architechtural firm , then known as ARCHTELLIC, in 1985.
