Patrick Altes: Creativity in a Time of Crisis
April 13, 2020 - Paul-Gordon Chandler
Interview with Patrick Altes
How has this pandemic affected you and your creative output? How are you adapting to the new realities?
The pandemic has had a huge impact on my ideas and the direction my art is going to take. It has confirmed the need to see the world as a hugely complex ecosystem with intricate interactions between all its components, as well as to re-position our place and role in it (are we similar to this all invasive and deadly virus to the world we inhabit?).
Paradoxically, my day to day life as a visual artist has not been hugely affected by the lockdown as working in the studio is not always very dissimilar to being in quarantine.
