Hello, I'm Anne Vandycke, a contemporary abstract visual artist, best known for my minimalist and abstract conceptual painting about change.
I'm also a graphic designer/art director and work for companies on their brand identity. My strength is to have a great sense of composition between images, colours and typography, to be able to photoshoot and doing illustration. My skills in art are very helpful. The approach is however different.
Art is for me a free expression of the mind and senses. It opens the door of imagination to make sense of it. It is the expression of unconscious experiences and for this reason there will never be one single meaning given to a work but only the meaning that each of us puts in it.
'ART IS ALWAYS A PERSONAL STORY, BOTH FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE ARTIST AND THE ONE WHO ADMIRES.'
Horizon 2030 reflects a horizon which seems to be far away but becomes closer with the constant change and acceleration of our societies. Always go faster, be even more efficient at any price.
THE STATE OF CHANGE IS MORE THAN EVER A CONSTANT, WHICH IS A PARADOX AS A CONSTANT SHOULD BE STABLE BUT IT'S NOT THE CASE.
Nothing is predefined but everything is possible : a form that transcends an existing framework to extract an infinity of possibilities, source of innovation, a color that seeks to make the work emotionally intense, a rupture that reflects a state of change, that of the environment or that of the world around us.
Everything is possible, such as my brush strokes that follow a free abstract movement in search of a perfect balance, the one between the colors, the lines, the shapes, the tensions, the emotions and my own vision.
