I am exhibiting within a Group exhibition with styles to suit most tastes, which will be well worth a visit.
I love colour and texture and unexpected happenings, the trick is to find a way to make them work within the picture, and this leads to work that is abstract, semi-abtract and often in the style of expressionism.
“For me Drawing and Painting is about the interaction between the discipline of observation and 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’s work, captures abstracted perspectives of the subject. Subjects, often land and seascapes, are studied and then primarily depicted through multi-media collage and oil paints, or sometimes via mono-printing or maybe pastels with their immediacy and impact.
“I usually explore places and landscapes, from a flattened aerial perspective. I like some grittiness in the landscape. Whatever “it” is that inspires me, I need to have a strong emotional response to “it” – even if it is dislike.”
With a BSc Hons in Psychology from Bristol University, Antonia went on to obtain an MA in Printmaking and Professional Practice with the University of Brighton and the London Print Studio. Additional artistic training followed in Britain, with Oliver Bevan in London, Roy Ray at the St Ives School of Painting, and more recently with Ashley Hanson in Cornwall.
Antonia Glynne Jones has established her presence across the UK, exhibiting extensively since 1990, with involvement in shows including The Pastel Society at the Mall Galleries in London, the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition, London in 2016, 2017 and 2018, the Bath Open Art Prize 2019, Claydon House Landscape Exhibition 2019, the Brighton Art Fair 2019 and the Parallax Art Fair 2020.
