Towards the fantastic
" The fantastic, the inspiring color of false when it becomes true again...has implemented behind my back, to the point that I was early concerned about this interference... gradually I complied with the clues and I accepted them. Fantasy is the revelation of imagination. "Nicolas Eekman
"The fish is the basis of his dreams of adventure.
He pins windvanes with fish, he locks them in birdcages, he sets some for fishermen as mounts. Suddenly a fish emerges at the end of the pole of fishermen in monstrous proportions, as a witness of the mysteries of the great liquid extent.
Its strangeness and incongruity is equalled by the fishermen themselves or sailors of chance as we are all on the ocean of life, which can be lulled by the stream of waves on their walnut hull, carefree dangers."
René Druart. On the spirit of the work of N. Eekman, December 1942.
