To Godly, the mountains represent power, spirituality, and imperishable magnificence — a contrast to the transient beauty of the fashion world. His fascination and source of strength has guided his subject matter; in an effort to capture the grandeur, he employs brushed oils and turpentine into a thick impasto, resulting in physical and perceptual depth. The texture of his gestural strokes begs similarity to the natural weathering of rock, while his restricted palette adds spatial definition and boldness to the abstracted landscapes. His full collection of paintings and studies are available on his website. I do hope you take time to look through his work and become enveloped as I first did.
