statement

Ida Broekhart has always been fascinated by working with textiles. It is her main discipline and  she loves working on Project Vintage. In this project art-objects were created with the throwaway society as a theme. They are dynamic objects which connect the past with the present. The artist’s goal is to transform recycled materials of all kind into symbols of ecological well-being.
With her art Dutch based Ida Broekhart wants to clarify that any change starts with the individual.  She has always been attracted to the mystery and magic of life and finds astrology, psychology and symbols highly interesting and inspiring. Intuition and  the inner voice have therefore gradually become important tools in art and in life itself.
Her project consists of (abstract) textile works mixed with (found) media. With her sculptures, paintings, life-size dolls and wall objects she wants to express that there is more than matter only. Ida’s artwork want to focus the attention on the intergenerational balance. By using (industrial) waste in her art she is a participant in the natural cycle of mother earth.

Ida’s favourite artist is Wassily Kandinsky because of his sophisticated use of colours and shapes. Kandinsky’s Bauhaus textile artists group and the use of non-traditional materials have been an important influence. (Found) materials were mixed and build with textiles to challenge people’s perception. (part of an article in an English Artjournal)



Altijd al was Ida Broekhart gefascineerd door textiel. In de Vintage projecten ontwikkelden zich (abstracte) mixed media werken met als thema de wegwerp maatschappij. Het zijn dynamische objecten, die het verleden met het heden verbinden. Tijdens het experiment met plastic & wol, met sprokkelhout & knopen, met acrylverf & afval ontstonden ongewone combinaties.  Gerecycled materiaal werd getransformeerd tot ecologisch verantwoorde symbolen van welzijn.

De kunstenares wil duidelijke maken dat verandering begint bij het individu. Met haar hedendaagse (soft) sculpturen, mixed media schilderijen, miniatuur borduurwerk, textiele wandobjecten, wearable art, installaties én soms een portret van een menselijk karakter wil zij uitdrukken dat er meer is dan de oppervlakkige wereld van de materie. 

Ida Broekhart woont en werkt in de Randstad regio.
