A humanist’s look
" I would like one before my work to feel in communion with another. "Nicolas Eekman
"As a simple man, Nicolas Eekman notes with acuity and tenderness the Brabant farmers in their daily shores and transposes them into a dreamy phantasmagoria. This rootedness in a dark, hard land makes him give priority to drawing in a country where graphic tradition is subject to ethics of Man.
... This visionary is also an exceptional engraver.
Eekman renewed with a humanism in which his art has always drawn strength and authenticity."
Lydia Harambourg (Excerpts from the Gazette Drouot. Paris, 2000)
