Folkert de Jong

Folkert de Jong explains, "I'm interested in how feelings or symbols or religion can manifest itself in something recognizable. I think we are in a phase that we are not sure what to believe in or what is the truth or who is gonna guide us to a better future... Forexample, I have titles in my work like 'The Great Communicator' or 'The Manipulator' or 'The False Prophet'. We are all playing roles in a way...By bringing up the evil -to recall the evil I try in a way to bring those negative energies together to contain them and give them a personality. So they are safe and we can recognize them."
