Anne Vandycke, Abstract Visual Artist

Anne Vandycke portrait picture 2.jpg

I’m a Belgian artist living and working in New York, best known for my minimalist abstract oil painting and my sense of color and composition that transforms shapes and lines into an energetic state of change. The transition from one state to another is what brings my art to life. My work is inspired by the constant change and all aspects of change, whether it be a feeling or observation, world news or a rhythm.  Change is more than ever a constant, which is a paradox as a constant should be stable.

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.’

 

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, 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.

I have exhibited my work in solo and group shows in the USA and in France, at venues including the National Academy Museum, NY; the Sonia Gechtoff Gallery, NY; the N.A.W.A. Gallery, NY; The Other Art Fair, NY; the Ad Art Show at Sotheby’s, NY; The Ad Art Show digitally on the LinkNYC screens, at the Oculus Westfield World Trade Center screens; at Fendi Casa Showroom, NY; at the BelCham, NY; at Intuitae Family Office, at the Private Residence of the Belgium Consul, NY. My works are in private collection in the USA, Belgium, France, Japon and Switzerland. I studied Art in New York at Columbia University in an Advanced Intensive Painting Program, at the National Academy School & Museum in the Studio Art Intensive Program and Graphic Design at the Parsons, The New School. Before, I attended Universities in Belgium and France and earned Masters degrees in Economic Field. This background has influenced my painting and has given a certain strength to my work.
