Andries Gouws describes himself as an exponent of slow painting – when he paints he lingers over what he is painting as well as over the painting process and hopes to coax the viewer’s eye to linger on things, and the paintings, as well.
In painting, he strives to capture a sense of the here and now, especially by attending to the play of light on ordinary objects and spaces, and avoids painting anything that suggests a clear meaning or message.
