Statement:
Goff was born in 1949 in the small South Wales town of Brynmawr, where his artistic interests were first noticed and encouraged by his very supportive art teacher at the local grammar school. During this time, his ability was evident, even as a schoolboy he won national art prizes and exhibited in places such as Carnaby Street in the swinging sixties and also in Geneva, Switzerland.
On leaving school, Goff trained at the West of England college of Art, Bristol, Cardiff College of Art and Cardiff University. He then taught at St Illtyds College, Cardiff until moving into the management of education for a number of local authorities in South East Wales. This became his full time occupation for many years. Like any other family man, he had to earn a living and could only paint on a part time basis until the late 1990's.
However, since then he has acquired a confidence in his own understanding of art to paint for his own purpose, in his own way, regardless of trends or prejudices. Fortunately, this has proven to be very successful and enabled him to explore a completely new career as a full time professional artist.


Vita / Lebenslauf:
Goff works from a studio in his native town of Brynmawr in South Wales, UK and continues to appreciate the direct links with his origins which provide the stimulation for the majority of his paintings. These combine elements of the everyday landscape with complex emotional values, giving his work a unique quality. This is enhanced by his particular style of painting on heavily textured canvas.
His expressive forms are distinctive, yet allow a degree of personal interpretation. The atmospheric qualities he creates often serve to stimulate the imagination and memory of others. Goffs paintings tend to reflect the mood or atmosphere of events and locations, rather than being a purely pictorial representation. They are about his thoughts and memories, illustrated with references to the places he knows so well.
Although most of his paintings have personal recollection and experience as their foundation, they are generalised in a way which makes their appeal extremely wide -ranging. I often find myself linking past events with the development of my paintings and using familiar imagery to reinforce the connection.
One of the reasons which is often mentioned to explain their appeal, is their apparent 'honesty' as images and their total lack of pretence. These qualities often seem to be lacking in many contemporary offerings. Often people consider that Goff's work represents some elements of the style of the American artist Edward Hopper combined with some of the sentiments of Dylan Thomas.
''THE MEMORIES OF CHILDHOOD HAVE NO ORDER....AND NO END'' : Dylan Thomas.
Like most people Goff has come to appreciate what he prefers and considers that the images he creates adequately represent his taste. Painting has become a further means of expression which enables him to share with others his own view or understanding of a personal experience. This is his ideal form for communicating some of the qualities of life which he particularly appreciates as having influenced him.
The story behind each picture is an essential element in understanding the way in which the image represents Goff's nostalgia for his past memories and many of the people he knew along the way.
The area in which Goff has lived, grown and worked has provided a constant source of inspiration and is visually stimulating. Through his paintings he is able to share his interpretation of this environment with an increasing international audience. His individual style of painting and the quality of his work, has led to great demand. In fact, Goff's work is now established as being amongst the most sought after in the contemporary art market in Wales.
He is in a very unusual position as an artist. Due to popularity, his work has steadily risen in value and continues to do so. New paintings are eagerly anticipated by an avid group of collectors and enthusiasts, regularly being sold out within a day or even hours.
Many now regard these paintings as sound investment opportunities for the future, and clamour for his originals. In order to cater for the needs of a much wider audience and to demonstrate the diversity of his skills, Goff's paintings include nostalgic Welsh landscape, industrial and fairground art.
A selected limited edition range of his work is published by leading fine art publishers Senecio Editions of Oxford, UK.
Supply of Goffs originals is limited, due to demand or private commissions. They are available on a strictly first come basis, due to an ever increasing waiting list. Inclusion in any exhibition, therefore, needs to be planned in advance in order that work can be made available as required.





Aktivitäten / Ausstellungen:
Goffs work are in great demand and he has a diverse range of private collectors. So much so that he has had to produce a range of limited edition prints as the originals sell within a few days of being placed in one specific gallery. He is now ready to promote his work in other parts of the UK and abroad and has just made links with an American agent who is looking for art for Welsh Americans.

Goff is a full time professional contemporary artist.
