About The Artwork

Medusa Welcome! Enjoy the authentic and original art by Dutch artist Sylvia Thijssen. Title of the painting: ‘Medusa’ 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. ‘Medusa’ 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. Medusa was a very beautiful, but monstrous goddess with a luxuriant head of hair, consisting of twisting snakes. This was due to a jealous trick of the goddess Athena who also caused all the people who looked at Medusa to immediately turn to stone. Perseus eventually beheaded her using the trick of doing this through a mirror instead of looking directly at her. Her severed head was then painted on warrior shields to defeat the enemy. I feel sympathy for the powerful Medusa. In the painting fragments of a personal poem: Those who spoke the truth Called my life a lie While I turned away from them (the fish bit a great void I turned out to be addicted to that square) I knew I had my share of the truth illegible in my hands If you want to see the other paintings in the series and in my studio, follow this link: https://widgetviewer.photoconnector.net?widgetId=84ac6bd4-3f3a-489c-b678-13c97d59dc3d&locale=nl-NL  Let my art color your 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
