Slowing down time
About his work he says: ‘Every drawing begins with an emotion, an experience, an observation, a thought, a possibility. The drawn line connects what is nearby with what is far away, me with the physical world. I take walks armed with a sketchbook and often have encounters that linger on in my memory. Drawing is a reaction to the pleasure of observation, experiencing the world, being out of doors. I draw and paint to slow down the passage of time, to be able to say: Look, this was a moment I did not want to forget. Each painting is a tribute to the remarkable individuals (humans as well as animals) that I have met somewhere along the way.”
The exhibition can be viewed daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Admission is free
