Lionel Playford

I’m a painter at heart but have explored shipbuilding, sculpture, installation, and printmaking since 1977. I like to work outdoors getting to know the landscape and its weather- the ‘weather-world’- through drawing and painting using found materials, like earth and rain, and found energies, such as wind and sun, in combination with more conventional drawing materials.

These drawings are events, which take their own course according to conditions and my emotional state. They are a channel for a physical and emotional engagement with nature, experience which feeds into studio practice.
