Slow Art is the antidote for the disposability of contemporary culture.
We act from the inside out. We believe in the power of art to change lives. We see the
personal as political and the local as global. Art is a material process based on the
body and we act from and within the material traditions of art. We believe in the power
of painting and drawing to have contemporary relevance and the daily practice of art is
an acknowledgement of our need to embrace shared meanings.
