For Catherine Goodman, "some of the greatest art of the 20th Century was made through the medium of film." Film Images is the culmination of a weekly practice in which Catherine and her friends draw from film. The freeze-frames of films such as Orson Welles’ Chimes at Midnight (1966), Andrei Tarkovsky’s Mirror (1975), and Wim Wenders’ Paris, Texas (1984) are the subjects of six-minute sketches. While Catherine considers this process akin to the artistic tradition of copying, these drawings are also an important first stage in her overall practice. A drawing may instigate a watercolour which in turn informs a painting. Many film characters become the figures in her large-scale oil paintings, transported from their original setting in order to inhabit new and unfamiliar landscapes. Inspired by her father’s own love of international film, these works are an ode to a medium that plays a significant and personal role in Catherine’s creative output: "In the same way that I feed off the great art of the past, great films never let me down." Film Images is on display to coincide with And Everything Changed, an exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Catherine Goodman.
