Lis Naylor is a contemporary figurative artist and sculptor based in Leicestershire.
Her process begins with intense activity in the life room, where she paints her life model whilst dancing and pushing her body to the limits of its ability. Using a rigger brush dipped in ink and the lightest touch, Naylor captures the very essence of her movement. Naylor takes her easel and brushed into the fields of her farm and sits amongst her beloved horses grazing around her. Hours spent observing her subject ‘en plein air’ experiencing the elements adapting to their influences creates a graceful ephemeral look derived from nature as opposed to studio painting, which can appear pre-determined and stilted. The simplicity of her gestural paintings transfers honestly to her contemporary hand-finished silk screen prints.
