Angela A’Court’s narrative and figurative paintings use a simple and direct vocabulary to show the relationship of experience to expression of beauty and the quirkiness of every day moments. With an eye toward balance, the artist places shapes on the paper and works with the spaces in between.
A’Court was born in London in 1961. She attended the West Surrey College of Art and Design, UK, Parsons School of Art and Design, New York and Goldsmiths' College London where she earned her BA in Fine Art Textiles. A'Court worked as an interior designer for an architectural practice. She now paints full time and lives in New York.
