Casper White is an artist and curator based in Cardiff, Wales.

My work centres on the history of portraiture and how an artist can approach the portrait; I am currently prioritizing how light articulates a subject and illuminates a surface. This can be seen in my current candlelight paintings; these paintings play upon similarities between images of people crying in classical works and images shared on social media (BBC - Inside Culture - The Art of Crying ). Differently lit faces were also part of my series of nightclub/comedown paintings dealing with actual and simulated nightclub lighting (National Portrait Gallery Travel Award  2017— 2018). As a curator, I try to focus on creating relationships between works and using this to create conversation.
