INTERVIEW: NICOL FRANCIS HENDRUK AND…

Interviews | December 5, 2023

"Nicol's pictures literally captivated me, made me stare at them and let the emotions hidden in them bring out my memories. In the moments of adoration and relaxation, when I was absorbed by these strong impressions, words were coming to my mind that would describe the feelings evaporating from the drawing, sometimes a whole verse with a rhyme came at once. With images that captured my attention so intensely, I felt a theme bubbling in the air and an urge to materialize what hadn't been put into words yet. I began to write down what was flying around in my head and was surprised at the poignant descriptions and twists that appeared on the paper. The poems were born in the process of writing, without a plan and without thinking. What I did was wait for the words to float in, I didn't have to search for them." - Helena Lněničková. Read more
