As close to heaven – Conrad Jon Godly Paintings


Just stumbled upon these incredible abstract paintings of mountains and five minutes later had bought Conrad Jon Godly ’s book Works + -

Perhaps it’s just my insatiable appetite for mountains but these images really speak to me, and I’m going to do everything I can to have one hanging near my fireplace with 1 year. 

Based in Switzerland around Chur , one would assume the artist has plenty of subjects to choose from, but rather chooses to paint abstractly, rather than subjectively.

Amazing birthday present. “Things you’ve taught me slash things I’ve learnt” 25 might be alright.

"There’s this Japanese story—about a woman who loved this man, her soulmate from childhood. Her parents made her marry a farmer. She ran off anyway with her soul mate and had kids with him. Years later, she comes back to her family and says: “I’m sorry I ran away.” And they say: “What? You’ve been here the whole time, you’ve been ill, in bed.” And she meets the other version of herself, this ghost, and she embraces this woman, and they become one person. And it’s this Buddhist parable, like: which one is the ghost?

Ever since I left you I thought that in some parallel ghost world we had kids we rowed by a canal…I thought part of me would be a ghost forever, without you. I was no longer real even when I was happy. But no, all along in real time you’ve gone on being you and I’ve gone on being me and yes I really love you enough to be ghosted by you my entire life but my God I left you for a reason."

Abdul Abdullah

1. Abdul Abdullah (c.2014); I wanted to paint him as a mountain, oil on canvas

The talented Abdul Abdullah's portrait of fellow artist, Richard Bell. This painting is a Finalist for the 2014 Archibald Prize: http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/prizes/archibald/2014/29470/

Abdullah spoke of a conversation with Richard Bell, at Bell’s own home.

"I remember asking how an artist survives between shows and Richard chastised me by saying, “by making fucking good art”.

Just finished The Nightly News by Jonathan Hickman and fuck it was good. I’ve read a tonne of his stuff now and I just love the way he interprets, recreates, adapts ideas and creates work that is just ON POINT. This was a joy because at the back of the book he lists sources and has footnotes that expand on ideas, tell you where something comes from, or makes personal asides and it just gives you this insight into how much goes into his work. Also, great one liners as usual. This was probably one of my favs. Pax Romana was amazing too in terms of interrogating an idea and creating a great piece of work in a similar way to this, and of course, I’m just going nuts for East of West like everyone else. I wasn’t crazy for the first TP of Secret and Manhattan Projects is still going but Pitarra’s art slows me down.  God is Dead is an interesting premise but for me the pacing seemed off. I’ve just ordered his run on Fantastic Four which will be my first dip into that side of his work and hopefully good too but I don’t think it will be able to do the same things as The Nightly News. I guess that’s not the place for it anyway. Whatever, highly recommend.

Today I got great photographic evidence of a real lad rocking Nike slides and socks. To top it off, he got on the train at Gerringong.
