Steen wanted the title of this third exhibition to offer the key to his own state of mind during the creation of his works, as well as the message of inner peace that he intend to convey. For those who know the pieces, it may be obvious that in his art there is an aim, at least partially, for therapeutic purposes, as well for himself as for others. For those who discover the works, the question arises. These caskets, in all their flamboyant apearences, do they open for a peaceful path? These so chaste insides, so enclosed, will they offer us this intimate space, this so much desired volume in which our past dreams are to be gathered, where will be placed our conquests that failed, our unfulfilled ambitions? What can I say? What do I feel? To each one, his own feelings.
Closing the lid, and with it the bracket.
Nigel Atkins, director of Galerie du Don.
