Sylvia ANTONSEN - The Lizard

British Contemporary Artist: Syvia Antonsen

Painting: The Lizard

Sylvia Antonsen has long been fascinated by the British coast, it''s shoreline and buildings. Her preferred British locations are areas in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Kent, Somerset, Sussex, Hampshire and Dorset.

The contemporary oil painting of the lighthouse at Lizard Point in Cornwall illustrates this interest. With no sign of human activity the lighthouse looks abandoned and very calm and quiet. There is an anomaly in portraying a lighthouse in a time of quiet rather than storm, as if it is ready and waiting until it is needed.

The lighthouse is portrayed as very strong and solid, equal to all it may encounter. The sky is clear at present but the darkness in the foreground is perhaps reminding us of stormy times to come. The planes of the walls of the building are painted very clearly and precisely. As in all of Sylvia Antonsen paintings it is this linear quality that accentuates a sense of calm and order.

In addition to Red Rag British Art Gallery Sylvia Antonsen has exhibited at other leading British Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Sylvia Antonsen artist studio and like all Red Rag British art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.

A major exhibition of Sylvia Antonsen paintings will take place at Red Rag Gallery in Spring 2007. For further details contact the gallery.
