David Woodford

Elected RCA 1977

Born in 1938, David has lived in the Nant Ffrancon, Gwynedd since 1971. Studied at West Sussex School of Art; Leeds College of Art and the Royal Academy Schools.
“After leaving the Royal Academy Schools in 1968 I returned to hill country that had formed sentiments of proven consequence in childhood. I am the proverbial student of nature, all images formed and measured against the experience of being there.I am mesmerised by the appearance of appearances;they are not a limited property of the object but a mysterious function of our consciousness. I have made a living solely from painting.”
