Simeon Stafford

THE WORKS SHOWN ARE PART OF AN EXTENSIVE PORTFOLIO. FOR FURTHER ENQUIRIES PLEASE CONTACT THE GALLERY.

Simeon Stafford was born in Duckinfield, a small northern town bordering the Pennines, in 1956. As a young artist, Stafford's landscapes were similar to the gritty northern landscape of L.S.Lowry and other English northern artists. At the age of 14 Stafford was introduced to L.S Lowry after winning the Robert Owen Award for Art and the Manchester News Portrait Award, Lowry became a family friend and remains a constant source of inspiration to the artist. From 1972 Simeon studied at Hyde College and in 1974 became a professional artist. When Simeon later moved to Cornwall in 1996, the influence of his northern roots fused with the magnetism of West Penwith to create an expressionism within his work which is both powerful and alluring. During this time, he met the artists Patrick Heron and Terry Frost.

Not concerned with angst and soul searching, in his own words "there is enough of that in the world of news today", Stafford reflects a world full of incident and accident, with splashes of vibrant colour and amusing compositions.

He charmingly combines reality and imagination with many of his paintings featuring characters from his family, including Aunt Dot, the little girl who is constantly doing a handstand and Trixie, the family Jack Russell, who lived until she was 28 and is now stuffed and a resident of Simeon’s bedroom.

Widely regarded as one of the country's leading living artists, Stafford exhibited at the Royal Academy in 2001 and his work can also be found in numerous private collections, including those of her Majesty Queen
