About The Artwork

Fontana Viva Welcome! Enjoy the authentic and original art by Dutch artist Sylvia Thijssen. Title of the painting: ‘Fontana Viva’ Size: 150 x 100 cm (± 59,1 x 39,4 inches) Medium: this artwork is created with oil paint (upper layers) and acrylic paint (under layers). Painting will be shipped in a tube. Rolled works can be easily stretched (placed onto wooden stretcher bars) and/or framed by a local framer upon arrival. Dated: 2020, signed and dated on the front. Made in my studio in Breda, The Netherlands. Document of Authenticity included. ‘Fontana Viva’ is part of the Chateau d’Arte series, a series of monumental paintings in which personal stories intertwine with old myths. Created in the tranquility of the corona pandemic, these are my painterly Grand Cru's that show a world full of visual adventure. Rome, a city I visited often, is a city of fountains. In Rome I learned to drink, taste and appreciate water. And then no water from the tap, because the Italians generally do not drink water that had a technical process. But water from the (drinking) fountains on the street. And then you shouldn't think that every fountain spits the same water! No, that depends on which aqueduct the water supply comes from. And then it also matters that a fountain that is closer to the supply of an aqueduct gives colder water (from the mountains) than water that has been flowing through the city for some time. With a real Roman next to you, you cannot roam Rome without drinking water from the various fountains. With accompanying explanation about what you taste and why it is healthy. And apart from the water-thing, sitting comfortably on the edge of a water-spouting fountain in a warm sun increases your lust for life!

In a short docu I show you my latest series of paintings in my studio. In Dutch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPrjF3D0Irs&t=61s Living in a not-too-big city in the south of the Netherlands, the Dutch visual artist Sylvia Thijssen walks every day to her studio. It is a four kilometers walk wherein she crosses two small rivers. It is an excellent distance to free her mind of domestic affairs for to let the muse in. It is in this sunny, personal space that she paints her colorful canvasses, in active gestures big and small, like dancing, always trying to hear the colors sing together, searching for an energy wherein is also the peace of a moment in eternity, taking time as if the paint forms a structure that grew and matured. Thijssen is not thinking of her work as making paintings, no, these are adventures. Exciting adventures for her as a painter to make new experiences for the one who is looking at them. These adventurous paintings are meant to wander the mind and to wonder the eye. See also her website: http://www.sylviathijssen.nl
