The Incredible Textured Paintings of

CONRAD JON GODLY

( I Could only upload low quality images, the stunning ones are on his website, all above the 10 mg limit on tumblr )

It amazes me what some people can do with paint. the feeling of rock and cold and mist and altitude that these pieces by Swiss artist Conrad Jon Godly convey is just unbelievable.

Godly originally studied as a painter at the Basel School of Art in the 80s, and then was a professional photographer for almost 2 decades – until he decided to return to painting. first working from a studio in Vienna, he eventually returned to his home in the Swiss Alps, where he studies the mountains on long walks with his camera.

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.

Zheng Chunhui, a famous Chinese wood carver spent 4 years engineering this master piece from a single tree. Based on a famous Chinese painting “Along the River During the Quingming Festival” the carving echoes the daily life of the 12th century Chinese local. The level of detail is stunning!
