Patrick Vertenten

Patrick Vertenten’s work tries to shed a modest, incomplete light on our society…
… with metaphors about the search for harmony and consensus, with mythological figures about nature and arrogance. It’s about leadership and obstacles that make it difficult to move forward together.
Or should we rather take a step backwards and choose a different, softer path? Economic growth is not sustainable, because the planet is not growing along with it.
However, despite our differences, we are inseparably connected with each other, nature and the planet, and we must try to overcome those differences.
It might be a gloomy picture, but there is hope; because nevertheless we are able to fly.
