Syracuse-based artist, Diana Godfrey has long created non-representational pieces, emphasizing texture, shapes and the interplay between various segments in her works. For her, colors serve as markers: They light up a surface or help initiate a dialogue between the artist and viewers. Godfrey clearly isn’t creating figurative artworks but she does include glimpses of familiar objects: a ladder in “Escarpment,” stairs in “Suspended.” She uses colors to emphasize those shapes and to smooth transitions within her acrylics. For her, color is an essential tool.
