I'm a Belgium Contemporary Artist Painter born in Brussels and also French citizen, living and working in New York.
I exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in the United States and France. My artworks are in private collections in Belgium, France, Switzerland and the United States. I'm a National Association of Women Artists member (N.A.W.A.).
I studied Art in New York at Columbia University in an Advanced Intensive Painting Program, at the National Academy School & Museum for two years in the Studio Art Intensive Program. Previously. I enrolled in courses at the School of Visual Arts Continuing Education Program in Fine Arts and at the Atelier d'Arts Plastiques des Arts Decoratifs in Paris.
Before, I changed my career path for artistic activities in 2007, I got also Masters degrees in Business Administration at the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium, at the Sorbonne University, IAE Paris and at Paris Dauphine University in France and began my professional life as a consultant in Organizations and Change Management.
This first career in change management has influenced my painting.
In 2010, I published an illustrated detective novel titled Macao Boites, in La Bruyere Editions which is a dark view about managerial shenanigans within two big entertainment companies.
I'm Board Member of the the Paris American Club.
Infinite Conceptual Space characterizes the work of Anne Vandycke offering the viewer a feeling of tensions between natural elements. With these tensions or oppositions, possible paths open up to unify them, left at the imagination of the viewer who can also draws beyond these dichotomies a world of infinite possible solutions.
Things are never black or white. There are infinite possibilities to explore within or outside our comfort zone, based on uncertainty in which we can build our hopes and dreams. This could correspond to innovation, creativity and imagination.
Anne's work starts by deconstructing the Space in two parts to illustrate dualities, starting point of the infinity of choices. The forms are sometimes geometrical and architectural, sometimes there is a fluidity in lines that breaks the linearity. Colors give also the feeling of Duality by using warm or cool tonalities. In space, these colors are in duality. She makes density changes in the painting to pop up oppositions or tensions between different states.
Her work is a way to explore our environment differently, find the right balance between things and explore infinite possibilities out of the box.
