The Importance of Being embodies the core of the work of e a r n e s t. Who are we ? Really ? To what extent are we, who we are ? In what order do the others limit us, in our being ? Or do we put boundaries on our self out of fear or ignorance ? Can or will we be able to detach ourselves from patterns and systems in which we were purged ? Do we close our eyes for what happens in and around us ? Do we linger in superficiality or do we accept the challenge to experience the depth and the height ? Do we open up for a universal connection or do we cling on to indifference and individualism ?
Besides painting art, e a r n e s t (°Antwerp, 1976) works on a graphic novel.
