Karen Wright visits the studio of painter Catherine Goodman on the occasion of the exhibition Catherine Goodman: Worlds Within at Marlborough Fine Art, London, on view from September 12 - October 6, 2012.

The press release notes that the paintings "are the result of twenty-five years of working in the Indian Himalayas and are a dialogue between Indian and London, the artist’s home. They combine paintings of mountains and huts with interiors of her family home and studio." In the interview Goodman tells Wright, "I sometimes wish I had never been to India, once you've been there, there is no going back... What India does and has always done for me is heighten my imaginative life and continually surprise me. I think what first astounded me there was the extraordinary scale of the landscape."
