Anne Vandycke is a Belgian artist living and working in New York. Vandycke is best known for her minimalist abstract oil painting and her sense of color and composition that transforms shapes and lines into a free movement and an energetic state of change. The transition from one state to another and the movement is what bring her art to life. The freedom of the brushstroke and the precision of the composition makes the work intense, always seeking to make the imagination travel through emotion, which is for her the essence of Art.
Art is for her 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.
Vandycke has exhibited her 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 Affordable Art Fair, 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. Her work is represented by InSight Artspace Gallery. Her work are in private collection in the USA, Belgium, France, Japon and Switzerland. Vandycke 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, she attended Universities in Belgium and France and earned Masters degrees in Economic Field. This background has influenced her painting and has given a certain strength to her work.
