Asemic writing is a process inspired by handwriting. This is a completely abstract visual creation deprived of any specific semantic meaning and therefore open to every possible interpretation. Calligraffiti is an art form that combines calligraphy, typography and graffiti. This style integrates signs referring to lettering in compositions that form a broader, symbolic, very emotional message.
“Pseudologia Fantastica” by Robert Vanecke a painting series, which refers to the theory of lies, is a good example of symbolism. Artist transforms abstract symbols into an integral part of the story in the pictures. Forms combine cultural heritage. The composition is a journey of transformation. Paintings in Simple colors, forms, almost ascetic compositions.
Roy van Ecke attempts in and by his works, to define and capture this eternal human vice. Like philosophers, ethicists, logicians, semanticists, semiotics, psychologists, sociologists and, finally, linguists, Robert Vanncke encodes his insights and reflections on the nature of lies. The artist presents in an abstract way the universality of the lie and its various forms. The paintings painted by Robert fit in the style of postpainterly and symbolic abstraction. Abstract painting easily lifts the weight of the subject. The painting forms used allow for interpretation of the complicated matter of lies, creating interesting compositions with a minimalist formula.
Inspiration for an artist often means a surge of unexpected inspiration. Robert’s approach to calligraffiti and colored drawing is based on the thesis that inspiration is the result of reflections and studying of a problem. He noticed that the world around him provides him with materials for further reflection. And then there is the process of translating all the experiences into colored drawings.
