A quiet revolution in painting that seeks to overturn fast-paced art production

British curator and writer Martin Herbert brings together in this volume the works of 19 contemporary painters that share a common stance that has come to be identified as "slow painting," referring both to its creation and its apprehension by the viewer. 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 toward an art that is "fast," quickly made and then consumed.

With 50 illustrations, Slow Painting includes an essay and curatorial overview by Martin Herbert and round-table interview with Hettie Judah.

Artists include Darren Almond, Athanasios Argianas, Michael Armitage, Gareth Cadwallader, Varda Caivano, Lubaina Himid, Paul Housley, Merlin James, Allison Katz, Simon Ling, Lucy McKenzie, Mairead O'hEocha, Yelena Popova, Carol Rhodes, Sherman Mern Tat Sam, Benjamin Senior, Michael Simpson, Tim Stoner and Caragh Thuring.
