Exhibition Catalogue

Following a solo exhibition of portraits at the National Portrait Gallery in 2014, Catherine Goodman exhibits new larger landscapes and figures at Marlborough Fine Art. Juxtaposing portraits of people and objects alongside larger-scale landscapes and subjects drawn from film, this exhibition reveals different facet’s of Goodman’s creative imagination and its rich range of references drawn from life and art.

The diverse landscapes of Tuscany and the Himalayan mountains in India where she has painted for many years, continue to feed her recent works. Huts, palapas, and poplar trees become powerful presences in scenes where a sense of spatial ambiguity often makes the landscape seem unfamiliar. Typically painted from life on un-stretched canvas, her works are layered with imagined scenes and memories in the studio, without losing the immediacy of her original encounter with the subject.
