Artwork by Godwin Laus

61 x 71cmOil on canvas2021

Godwin Laus migrated to Australia from Malta in 1981. After completing a graphic design course at Randwick TAFE in 1987, he worked as a graphic designer for various companies for a number of years. He graduated with Honours in 2004 at the National Art School Sydney, majoring in painting. He also completed a Diploma of Education in Visual Arts at ACU University, Strathfield graduating in 2006.

“The relationship between the world around me, the visible world, and what I paint is an ambiguous one. I am not interested in representing the world at its face value in my painting. There are many devices that can do that much better and quicker than I can, cameras, iphones, ipads, can give you the perfect image in one instant. There is no meaning for me to try and create a mere representational picture that echoes the living world. I make use of my surroundings in order to disclose something that comes from within, in response to the world around me. An alchemistic change takes place that involves subject matter, materials, combined with myself and the visual world that changes all these things into something other than what they were at the start.

The line between abstraction or figuration blurs, fades and loses meaning. Another world emerges from a painting, a personal and distinctive world, related to what is seen but not enslaved by it. Line, colour, tone, shape, these are the “senses” of painting. When the painting is viewed from close quarters, another more ethereal quality emerges. The image fades and is replaced by pure and sensory aspects. Paint that is sometimes thick or thin, transparent or opaque, brush stokes that are varied, connecting passages, layers, a variety of shapes that either fuse together or clash, marks, daubs and lines, running and connecting. This is the real soul of the painting. We are living in a time where each artist has to stake out his own space and relevance. He has to create a certain process and progression that is both personal and individual.” – Godwin Laus
