“Drawing and painting is about the interaction between the discipline of observation and spontaneity of mark making in terms of my response to the subject”.
Born and raised absorbing a spectrum of African colour, Antonia Glynne Jones’ work, often abstract, characterise vision and emotion, through a wealth of colour, vibrance and texture. Subjects are primarily depicted in oil and collage.
