Catherine Goodman, painter, and the Royal Drawing School’s Founding Artistic Director, discusses her five-month residency at Hauser & Wirth Somerset in 2018, and the body of work arising from this period of focussed painting and drawing, leading to her solo exhibition, EVE, at the gallery in spring 2019. This talk will consider the unique influence of residency settings on the development of work, and offer insights into the potential for artist residencies to shape artistic practice.
Goodman draws and paints daily from observation. She trained at Camberwell School of Art & Crafts and the Royal Academy Schools. In 2002 she won First Prize in the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery. She is represented by Marlborough Fine Art London and has had numerous solo exhibitions, including the National Portrait Gallery in 2014 with Portraits from Life, and most recently at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, and Marlborough Gallery New York, both in spring 2019. She established the Royal Drawing School with HRH The Prince of Wales in 2000.
