Joe Goode

Joe Goode is an American artist who contributed to the Pop Art movement. His paintings of skies and oceans examine the abstract qualities inherent in their forms. Though commonly grouped with fellow Pop artists, he is also associated with the California Minimalists, which includes Robert Irwin and James Turrell, whose work focuses on elemental subjects like light and space. Born in 1937 in Oklahoma City, OK, he attended the Chouinard Institute in Los Angeles. In 1962, he was included alongside Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Jim Dine, and Wayne Thiebaud in the historic exhibition “New Painting of Common Objects” at the Pasadena Art Museum. Goode’s works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., among others. The artist currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
