Antonia Glynne Jones is an East African painter now based in London, UK. After earning her masters in Printmaking and having undertaken artistic training in Britain with Oliver Bevan and Roy Ray at the St Ives School of Painting, Italy and South Africa, she embarked on a career as a full-time artist. Her work captures beautiful perspectives of landscapes and seascapes, often using the style of abstraction.
Transferring her East African Experience on the canvas
Being raised in East Africa with incredible light, red soil, infinite horizons and all the incredibly bright colours of Africa, this has st Jones to find similar elements in less suspecting places. Jones tends to explore places and landscapes for example Cornish harbours from a flattened aerial perspective with unusual colour schemes, reflecting and contrasting with her period in East Africa.Read more
Accumulating Sources of Different Mediums
Jones gathers her thoughts and ideas from casual drawing, photographing and walking in close proximity to the subject. Thereafter, she returns to her studio with all of these resources, where she completes small collage studies and drawings, sometimes just painting straight from the drawing. Jones revisits certain subjects several times which provides her with multiple experiences, adding even more complexity to the work.
Antonia Glynne Jones has established her presence across the UK, contributed by her involvement in shows such as the The Pastel Society at Mall Galleries, London in 2013 and the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition, London in 2016 and 2017. She hopes to extend her successes to global territories.Hide
