Gordon Williams’s paintings are a romantic and real expression of the Swartland and surrounding landscapes. His style has evolved over a lifetime of seemingly unrelated pursuits, and from a lifelong passion for the landscapes of the region.

Using the immediacy of acrylic applied expressively on canvas, or charcoal on paper, he works mainly en plein air (in the open air) – a forthright and intuitive process that draws energy from the ever-changing landscapes of the region.

For this year’s Solo Studios curation, Gordon has drawn on his recollections and sketches, together with photographic aide-mémoires and his ever-present imaginary vision, to interpret his love of the Swartland.
