Conrad Jon Godly出生于瑞士达沃斯,曾在巴塞尔艺术学院学习油画,至此之后的18年以时尚摄影师为业。直到2006年,他断然决定倾听内心的声音,重返画坛,并前往瑞士库尔的山脉寻求心灵的慰藉。

对于Godly来说,山脉象征着力量,灵性和不朽的辉煌——尤其是与瞬息万变光怪陆离的时尚界形成鲜明对比。这些有如自然风化般质感的作品,描绘出山脉的宏伟气魄与自然的瑰丽多姿。

Godly was born in Davos, Switzerland and studied as a painter at the Basel School of Art from 1982 until 1986. For 18 years afterwards he shot photos as a professional photographer. He loved painting and yearned to return to his fine art roots, but had fears about whether he could subsist as an artist, especially after an 18-year hiatus from painting. Despite his doubts, he decided to follow his passion and left his role as a photographer in 2006 to seek solace among the mountains of Chur, Switzerland.

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.
