When Syona first came to Britain, she arrived in the evening by ferry from Calais to Dover. She was mesmerized by the white chalk cliffs at Dover and the harbour lights. This image had such a powerful impact on her, that she decided to transpose those feelings onto canvas. Thus “Albion” has been created; straight lines - almost a 90-degree angle, chipped - separating the dazzling white of the land from the intense blue of the see... unless that's the evening sky over Britain, there! One of those perspective dilemmas, Syona is challenging us with, again and again.
