Art Statement“For me drawing and painting is about the interaction between the discipline of observation and the spontaneity of mark making in terms of my physical and emotional response to the subject”.
Born and raised absorbing a spectrum of African colour, Antonia Glynne Jones’ work, often abstract studies, characterise vision and emotion, through a wealth of colour, vibrance and texture. Subjects, often land and seascapes, are studied and primarily depicted through multi media collage and oil paints, sometimes via mono-printing or maybe pastels with their immediacy and impact.
Antonia’s work captures beautiful abstracted perspectives of landscapes and seascapes, focusing on specific elements to create drama.
