Joe godin

Joe Godin, Canadian born 1956 -, a Realist Painter
A self taught portrait and figurative artist. Adapting the Flemish “Layered Technique”. For no
better reason then it was the preferred method for artists and their guilds for some 300 years. I
enjoy the realistic effect and the intensity of shadow and light; the balance of tone and if done
correctly (that is the trick), dimension.
I have had the luxury to be able to draw from local artists throughout Canada, the Middle East,
China and Europe.
The Flemish Technique was popularized in the early 15th thru to the17th century (the Late
Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods). In the 19th century the technique revealed itself
again as Modern Flemish Painting.
We are, I feel, the product of our experiences, without the human figure there is no art.
I have painted for 50+ years.. true story: as a small child I managed some medium and started
painting horses on pieces of bed sheets.
Giorgio Morandi: A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas
what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing!
