Freek van Zoest
'There is a presence of musing within my artistic practice and I cannot deny the ponder. In this process I aim to find the ultimate image within my own visionary capabilities. The creation of art reveals to resemble a fire from which I cannot look away. It absorbs my inner gaze. During the state of musing I completely burry myself in more musings. And from deep down in darkness, where heaps of considerations are blocking the outer light, I am trying to escape towards more translucent musings. To get closer to the light, to get a clearer image of the ultimate, the transcendence. As a result the image is explored, refined and purified in the finest details of its own representation.'
