Antonia Glynne Jones

Artist Bio

Artist: Painter, painting is my obsession and passion whether with luscious thick oil, collage, mixed media or pastel.   “Drawing and painting is about the interaction between the discipline of observation and the spontaneity of mark making due to my emotional response to the subject and environment”.

Born and raised absorbing a spectrum of African colour, Antonia’s work, often abstract, characterise vision and emotion, through a wealth of colour, vibrancy and texture. Subjects are studied and primarily depicted through collage and oil paints, or sometimes via mono-printing or pastels.

“I tend to explore places and landscapes, for example Cornish harbours, from a flattened aerial perspective with unusual colour schemes. A number of years ago, I took a small plane flight around the island of Menorca (where my parents then lived) and these views inspired me. Until then, from an artistic point of view, the island was almost too pretty. I like some grittiness in the landscape, something man-made. When working on Cornish views, usually it is part of the man-made harbour that is the main focus or perhaps a dredger, or the large working boats in Penzance harbour. 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 Ashley Hanson in Cornwall. Plus, with time spent living, working and travelling across Africa, Italy and Menorca – all presenting diverse and plentiful geographical motivations and inspirations for her work.
