Roger Cremers makes lavish use of familiar historical images, such as photos and pictures from old books, which emphasise our striving towards progress. As a romantic, however, Cremers finds that reality presents itself in myths and apparitions, and he adds new ones. The act of thinking creates the forms. The questions that Cremers asks himself and seeks to formulate answers to in his sculptures and paintings are as follows: What shapes our perception? What are the connections between thinking and thought? To what extent does our knowledge match up with reality? Is it not true that we personally construct everything that we believe we know?
