An avid admirer of such masters as Titian, Corot and Matisse, the artist seeks to illuminate his subjects through lyrical compositions. Goodrich states: “Painting for me is a visual experience, in the same way that music, for a musician, is an aural one. In any painting, color imparts more than style and atmosphere; it gives weight to movement. I hope to locate the character of my motifs – that is, to give them a pictorial presence – through a rhythmic language of form”.

Several landscapes in the show represent Goodrich’s recent painting trips to Cranberry Island in Maine and to Telluride, Colorado where he taught a painting workshop this summer.

 The exhibit, also, includes Goodrich’s large, colorful interpretations of four tiny landscape etchings by Rembrandt. These interpretations recreate, with a full palette and at a far larger scale, scenes that inspired the Dutch master in his walks about Amsterdam over 350 years ago.

  1. Quick question to you: I notice that the talk is printed as starting at 4pm on the postcard and 3pm on this blog. Perhaps, John, you wish to clarify?
