Conrad Jon Godly (Switzerland)
An inner knowledge of the essence of mountains grows in us when we look at Godly’s paintings. And it is precisely such internalized knowledge of the mountains that the Swiss artist has continually brought on to the canvas. Godly paints such works exclusively, basically always the same - pictures of mountains in all kinds of weather, sometimes only of rocks formations, big, small, very big and very small paintings - and nothing else really. (cf. What is a mountain? by Philipp Meier)
