Seymour, Dermot ARUA (1956)

Dermot Seymour is a self-taught Belfast artist. He has been described as “a social realist, exploring the anxiety, bewilderment and absurdity of the situation in Northern Ireland and representing it with definite imagery but in an oblique and obscure way”. His social realist approach towards Northern Irish politics frequently involves a juxtaposition of images within the Irish landscape, particularly livestock, and religious and military symbols. He lives in County Mayo and is a member of Aosdána.

Smith, Blaise ARHA (1967)

www.blaisesmith.com

Blaise Smith was born in 1967. He attended the National College of Art & Design (NCAD). As a figurative painter he has exhibited widely and his work is held in many Public and Private Collections. In 1999 he completed “Roadworks”, a set of twenty four paintings depicting the men and machines of Cork County Council. The following year he painted ten paintings for Kilkenny County Council entitled “The Millenium Landscape”.

He has continued to win many awards and state commissions, most recently winning the Eigse Open Award in 2015.

Smith is currently working on “A Painting for Waterford” – a commission arising from another competitive process. This painting is a dramatic 5 metre panorama of the city of Waterford commissioned by the OPW, to act as a companion piece to the 1735 Willem Van der Hagen Waterford cityscape. Both will be unveiled in Autumn 2016.

A substantial part of Smith’s practise involves Portraiture and he has recently completed a portrait of Bernard Farrell the playwright, commissioned by the Abbey Theatre.

He was appointed Assistant Principal of the RHA Drawing School in 2013 and served on the Council of the Royal Hibernian Academy from 2013-15. He was appointed by the Minister for Education to the Board of the National College of Art and Design in 2015.

Staples, Sir Robert Ponsonby (1853 – 1943) 

Youngest son of Sir Nathaniel Staples, “Ponsy” Staples was born in Dundee in 1853 but came to Lissan House near Cookstown, County Tyrone when his father inherited the Baronetcy and took up residence there in the 1870’s. His formal education had begun in 1865 when he enrolled in the Academy of Fine arts in Louvain, Belgium. Having studied also in Paris and Brussels he eventually moved to England where, through the patronage of his cousin, Sir Coutts Lindsay, he was introduced to London society. Staples’ charm, good humour and gregarious nature won him many new friends and potential clients as well as entrée to the grandest events on the social calendar. His close friendship with Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward VII ) is well documented and his circle of friends, many of whom were the subjects of his art, reads like a Who’s Who of the great and the good including Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt, William Morris, Mark Twain, George Bernard Shaw, Yvette Guilbert and Lily Langtry!

Staples was a portraitist of some renown and there are currently six of his paintings hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Swanzy, Olive Adelaide (1882 – 1974)  

Olive Swanzy, was born in Cannes in the south of France, the daughter of the Reverend Thomas Biddall Swanzy, (Church of Ireland), of Newry, County Down. The Swanzy family, originally from Lancashire, had been in Ireland since the 1600s.

At the outbreak of WW.I. Olive joined the Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD) nurses and went off to serve at the Western Front. There she tended to soldiers who had been terribly wounded and saw things that nobody should have to see. During that time she made a collection of autograph books, filled with poems, sketches, drawings, stories and cartoons, reflecting the thoughts and fears of soldiers who had been wounded in active service.

After her death, a box of these autograph books and art was discovered in the attic of her home in Rostrevor and this turned out to be such a trove of material that much of it has been on display to the public at the Ulster Museum. Irish writer Carlo Gébler wrote an acclaimed play, ‘The Box‘, based on the collection and story of Olive Swanzy’s wartime experiences.

She never married and continued nursing when she returned from the Western Front, becoming the Matron of Newry Hospital, where she served throughout WW.II. She was prominent in the local St John’s Ambulance Brigade and taught at Sunday School.

In later years she seems to have started some sort of a postcard ‘cottage industry’ and turned out a charming range of hand-coloured cards of County Down. These are scarce but are just about the only way of acquiring the artist’s work. They are simple drawings and must have been printed with just the outline and the artist painstakingly colouring in each card as there are subtle differences in cards of the same scene.

Even though these hybrids are not original paintings they are something special and it’s nice to think of the old lady actually hand-painting each card! In recent months I was fortunate to pick up what is probably an original painting intended for a card but not a postcard – ‘The Square, Rostrevor‘ below.
