"Pseudologia Fantastica" by Roy van Ecke 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, Roy van Ecke 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 Roy van Ecke 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.

Based in: Amsterdam
Roy Van Ecke was raised in a family of Dutch functionaries. Roy was a rebellious boy, frequently changed schools, became independent at 18, interrupted and resumed studies. His fascination with calligraphy goes back to his childhood when, by using icons and symbols, he created his own alphabet.
Roy van Ecke studied parallel linguistics and graphic art, learned calligraphy in Japan and tried monastic life in China. He practices a combination of four traditional systems perpetuated over the millennia: Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga and Chinese calligraphy.
He adheres to post-painterly abstraction. While followers of this trend are ruthless in rejecting the inner and mysticism of abstract expressionism, Ron creates his own way of perceiving and communicating, his own approaches to the composition and basic elements of the medium itself: form, color, texture and scale.
