One of the best painters of his generation, now in Aspen
Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
On December 15, The Drasner Gallery, in collaboration with Markowicz Fine Art Miami (exclusive agent of Alain Godon in the USA), will open the exhibit “Head in the Clouds” featuring Alain Godon. Godon is an esteemed French artist making his way around the world. He has travelled and painted the beautiful sites of New York, Amsterdam, Paris, London Le Touquet, and Miami. This winter, Alain will add Aspen, CO to the list of his collection.
The show will feature Aspen’s architectural and natural landmarks. On display will be a collection of his oil paintings along with several series of his Bildoreliefo (Godon’s way of incorporating modern technology with the ancient art of painting). Godon, a master of color, will be capturing the essence of the Aspen lifestyle along with the natural beauty of being buried in the Rocky Mountains. The exhibition will be on display from December 15 through the New Year at the Drasner Gallery located in the heart of Aspen on 520 E. Hyman Ave. The Aspen Collection will feature pieces showcasing Aspen’s unique architecture and exquisite landscapes.
Godon began his architecture series six years ago. His collections continue to amass great interest from art collectors intrigued by the originality of his style and unique technique. Each painting captures several structural points of view influenced by the buildings’ many angles, all of which are placed on the face of the image to expose the landmark design elements upfront and expand its architectural integrity. Godon’s narrative creations tell a hidden story uniquely personal, meant for interpretation by the beholder. In addition, this show will contain some of Aspen’s natural landscape beauty incorporated with the creation of a story.
Alain Godon was born on November 1, 1964 in Bourges, France. In his family, everyone painted, from his architect grandfather down to him. At the age of 11, he was living in Achicourt, France with his uncle who was also an architect and taught Godon to draw, infusing him with his own passion. By 1985, Godon, a visual processor of all things around him, began his career painting chalk art on sidewalks outside of the Louvre Museum in Paris. In 1988, he found himself in St. Tropez, where he painted his first oil-on-canvas.
Declaring Godon one of the best painters of his generation, Christian Boeringer, former Commercial Director of the Louvre Museum and Patrice Deparpe, Director of the Museum of Le Touquet, have authored biographical art books dedicated to the experiences and works of Alain Godon as illustrated in the pages reflecting stories of the world that surround his daily life. Godon’s work has been exhibited in major art capitals around the world including New York, Moscow, Bali, and Paris.
