Classic Retro

This lovely painting by Bernard Dufour is classically retro in its 1970's vibe. It's a really innocent portrayal of a sunny Summer day, we love it here at White Court Art.

Welsh Naive Art

White Court Art are really happy to be working with  Welsh artist Therese James a full time artist who has been painting & exhibiting since 1993. She's a member of the Naive School & works from a compulsion to recreate what she feels & sees, relying purely on an instinctive approach to her art that has developed into her own style with expressive characters who inhabit the world of her paintings. Much of her inspiration comes from the places & literature of her native Wales & the West Country of England. She says she paints this way because she doesn't know "the rules", her paintings are a journey of discovery. Therese has been selected for "Welsh Artist of the Year" and been invited to represent The Countryside Council for Wales in exhibitions at The Royal Welsh Show and The National Eisteddfodd. We particularly enjoy her seaside pictures & her take on our traditions which reflect happiness & show her interpretation of our culture. Please check our website (www.whitecourtart.com) for available original paintings from this great Welsh naive artist.

Simeon Stafford - Cornish Artist

Here at White Court Art we love the work of Cornish artist Simeon Stafford. Stafford was born in 1959& as a young artist his landscapes were similar to the gritty northern landscapes of L.S.Lowry & other northern English artists. Simeon moved to Cornwall in 1996, where he met the artists Terry Frost & Patrick Heron. His northern roots fused with the influence of colour & light from Frost, Heron and Cornwall to create an expressionism within his work which is both powerful & alluring. Not concerned with angst or soul searching, in his own words "there is enough of that in the world of news today", Stafford's work is deeply idiosyncratic reflecting a world full of incident and accident, with splashes of vibrant colour & amusing compositions. He charmingly combines reality & imagination, many of his paintings feature characters from his family, including Auntie Dot, the little girl who is constantly doing a handstand, Trixie, the family Jack Russell, who lived until she was 28 & is now stuffed & a resident of Simeon’s bedroom and the black seaside donkey among others. Widely regarded as one of the country's leading living artists, Stafford exhibited at the Royal Academy in 2001 and in 2003 he became a member of The Birmingham Society of Artists. His work can be found in numerous private collections, including those of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and former Prime Minister Tony Blair. We are proud to offer some of Simeons work in our on-line gallery & would really love for you to discover it also, have a look, www.whitecourtart.com

William "Socrates" Waite

We, White Court Art, are really lucky to have found this artist, a real secret of the British Art Scene. He lived and worked in New York for a period before returning to his native Mousehole in Cornwall. An area much favored by British artists over the generations. He can truely claim to be keeping the local tradition of hosting great artists alive.

Socrates refers to himself as the" Master" and also as the "Spiritual Son of Picasso" and this is no slight exageration. He has over the years mastered many styles and one sees the influence of many other acclaimed masters in his works whilst at the same time retaining his own unique style. He has crossed the genres from Greek mytholgy, Buddhism using ancient techniques through the renaissance to van Gogh and of course Picasso influenced works and of course via Willaim Socrates Waite to produce some of the greatest artworks currently being created anywhere. Socrates himself professes to be The Master, no small claim and we are proud to be associated with such a truely unique talent. The art world is in for a great surprise.

Keep an eye on www.whitecourtart.com for a taste of this artists true talent.
