Angel with poem by Jan Petrie Poem is signed by Jan Petrie.
Ada Breedveld (1944) sees life as her school of learning. She wanted to be an artist from an early age and did not attend an academy or course. Breedveld has taught herself the trade and sees life as her school. From an early age she drew whenever she could, this has brought her a successful career. Working from her studio in Amsterdam, on the Prinseneiland, she brings her art to the world. A colorful collection of artworks including paintings, etchings and bronzes. Ada Breedveld started exhibiting in the 1970s. Surrealism fascinated her, an art direction in which not visible reality, but fantasy from our deepest inner self should be the starting point for art. Gradually she found her own typical style and theme: the imposing and present Woman. That woman, colourful, dancing, with glass in hand and birds in the air around her, is the ultimate bon vivant. This woman forms the central point in many of her works of art and it makes Breedveld's art very recognizable. Her works of art show something unreal, a dream, full of feeling and experience. She herself says: 'I've been painting all my life. The brush is an extension of my emotional life. This allows me to express myself in the most optimal way. The material gives me the challenge to create a world that creates the illusion of reality. A reality that does not really exist, but is experienced as such. As in a dream, the unreal is experienced as real.
