Biography



Artist’s Statement


Irene Godfrey paints fragmented landscapes.  Using oil on board she ‘draws’ in monotone concentrating on chiaroscuro, tone and varied mark making.  Her works are imbued by turns with a sense of vibrancy, beauty, fragility and unity.  Underlying references to progress and industrialisation, together with the fragmentation and breakdown of the work’s surface, create disquieting elements that threaten to disrupt the stability and stillness of the painting.  The resulting melancholy alludes to the ecological decay present in today’s unravelling environment.

Durham, near Blanchland, in 1955.  After pursuing a career in theatre she trained at the Cass School Art, London Metropolitan University (BA Fine Art, 2012).  Recent group exhibitions include: Reveal: Graduate Art Show, Guerrilla Galleries at the Daniel Libeskind Space; B A Fine Art Summer Show, Cass School of Art; Pre-degree Show, Arbeit Gallery (London, 2012); Melt Art Fair, Mile End Art Pavilion and 10 Artists, Lauderdale House (London, 2010).  Forthcoming exhibitions include 20/20, The Vyner Studio, London.
