Press Release

Artist Info

In Rosie Boycott’s thoughtful and fascinating catalogue preface Catherine Goodman quotes Lewis Carroll “How do I know what I think, till I see what I say?” This notion guides Catherine’s new work as she explores her past in intimate paintings of her childhood home interior and various still life objects used as metaphors for family members. Her family’s cosmopolitan and sophisticated background is the foundation for these beautifully measured works; vibrant, colourful paintings though they are there is poignant tenderness here too.
