Philip Drummond Q&A – Up Close and Personal

Philip Drummond - Artist Biography

Born Melbourne 1960
Lives and works in the Hunter Valley NSW Australia
Self taught painter

“My work is more than just art imitating nature, I have tried to infuse a quiet, reflective quality into my paintings with simple compositions and humble subject matter. The challenge being to create naturalism without the work becoming too laboured. I work directly from the model, seeing and painting being an intrinsic part of the process. Capturing my subject within the intimacy of the studio before it wilts and dies, reinforcing the permanency of art over the mortal world. In an uncertain world obsessed with technological advancement there is something reassuring about following traditions and exploring the simplicity of natural forms.” Philip Drummond
