Ash Godley: Flâneur
May 30-June 28, 2024
Ash Godley (they/them) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Guelph, Ontario. They have recently graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Art, majoring in Studio Art and minoring in Art History. Godley is primarily an oil painter, using a unique command of light and shadow to depict the familiar from unfamiliar perspectives. With ten years of painting experience, they have developed a keen sense of colour that allows them to put to canvas the dramatic lighting and unique distortions captured by photography.
Godley depicts residential and domestic scenes in their paintings. These quotidian landscapes are made uncanny by the dramatic contrast of flashlight beams, tv screens, and camera flashes, often seeking to cultivate the viewer’s anxiety in the dark, unknowable corners of the frame.
