About The Artwork

Welcome! Enjoy the authentic and original art by Dutch artist Sylvia Thijssen.Yggdrasil Welcome! Enjoy the authentic and original art by Dutch artist Sylvia Thijssen. Title of the painting: ‘Yggdrasil’ 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. ‘Yggdrasil’ 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. I put the paint on the canvas in active gestures, like I'm dancing. That gives me the feeling of freedom, something what is possible through art and what I appreciate in the arts. These canvasses are adventures, in which the mind can wander and the eye is wondering. The paintings are also very personal and have a strong connection with my life, my feelings and thoughts, at that moment. In the ancient mythological stories of Northern Europe, Yggdrasill is a tree that forms the world axis connecting different realities. A shaman can reach from our human world, in the middle, to the underworlds or to the heavens. That is a meditative yet dynamic process. Symbolized by animals like the horse I try to find a universal mythological image, interpreted in a personal way of painting, to represent my personal story.

In a short docu I show you my latest series of paintings in my studio. In Dutch. 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:
