Brent Godfrey: YOU ANIMAL at ‘A’ Gallery

EMPOWERMENT, 2023. OIL ON LINEN, 36×48 in.

Salt Lake City
Sep. 15 – Oct. 28

Artist Reception: Friday, September 15, 6-9 pm

In his solo painting exhibition YOU ANIMAL, artist Brent Godfrey democratically presents human and nonhuman figures in a world where the ordinary brings delight with a wink or raised brow. At times his expressions seem mythical, conjuring tales of gods presenting in animal form, full of spirit and intent. Some works are best described as portraits while others combine figures to form stories or describe relationships. Godfrey’s signature mark making is consistent throughout the work while, as usual, he flows freely between styles to accomplish what he desires in each piece. Some paintings lean monochromatic, while others burst with color. Some embrace elements of figurative tradition, while others break into abstraction. Godfrey’s images combine to create a celebration of life in a multitude of forms and remind us there are souls housed beneath this menagerie of surfaces.
