Sylvia ANTONSEN - Trevose Head

British Contemporary Artist: Sylvia Antonsen

Painting: Trevose Head

Sylvia Antonsen has long been fascinated by the British coast and its maritime buildings. Her travels and observations have taken her to many coastal counties including Cornwall. Trevose Head Lighthouse is British built on the north west extremity of Trevose Head on the north Cornish coast. Its white tower rises above the dramatic sheer grey granite cliffs that are more than 45m above the level of the sea. The light in use today is one of a pair originally constructed here '' a higher light and a lower. Pairs of fixed lights helped ships get their positions more accurately. It is the 27m tall higher light that remains in use '' a white-painted cylindrical stone tower with gallery.

Sylvia Antonsen has captured the lighthouse on a bright uplifting day. The building stands majestically against a brilliant blue sea and sky. And, the safety and security associated with lighthouses is reinforced by the calm and confident scene. As in all of Sylvia Antonsen''s work it is this linear quality that accentuates a sense of order.

Typically Antonsen looks for interesting and unusual Architectural, Landscape and Marine subjects for her paintings. Her preferred British locations are areas in Cornwall, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Kent, Somerset, Sussex, Hampshire and Dorset.

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.
