About her paintings:
The brushstroke, the action, the texture form the common thread in the work of Lon Godin. Aspects such as light, space and dynamics are used as dramatic elements. Although her work is purely about the visual, it also evokes an underlying world: an indefinable "presence". The painting here is about the tension between representation and formal properties of the painting. Presentation versus image. The surface, which is what the painting actually is, is loaded with space and movement. This load is palpable. It is a recognizable physical charge. Merleau-Ponty calls this the "togetherness of the perceiving and the perceived".
