Slow Painting

This publication presents the works of 19 contemporary painters that share a common stance now identified as ‘Slow Painting’, either in its creation, its apprehension by the viewer and/or its relationship to art history.

Moving from representation to abstraction, these artists insist on the phenomenological experience, creating works that reveal themselves slowly, as a riposte to the contemporary tendency towards an art that is ‘fast’, quickly made and then consumed.

Published to coincide with a Hayward Gallery touring exhibition in 2019-20: at Leeds City Art Gallery (25 October 2019 – 12 January 2020); The Levinsky Gallery, Plymouth (24 January 2020 – 28 March 2020); The Edge and Bath Spa University (10 April – 6 June 2020); Inverness Museum & Art Gallery and Thurso (July – October 2020).
