Bert De Geyter

Bert De Geyter's art practice sprang from an identifiable moment of colossal loss that triggered an all-encompassing loving insight. Since then, the artist has grasped the essence, the wisdom of loss and letting go that the butterfly children brought. It is not escapism but embracing the brutal reality. It is the beauty of radical acceptance. Each work is a memento mori, celebrating the death that the Western world so anxiously hides from view, as an ode to life. Honoring the all-binding force, the universal source of impermanence and resurrection.
