Joe Goode is an American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. Born in Oklahoma City in 1937, Goode moved to Los Angeles to attend the Chouinard Art Institute until 1961, where fellow artists Ed Ruscha and Jerry McMillan were also enrolled. Goode eventually became known for his large-scale, monochromatic milk bottle paintings and cloud imagery that played with perception and everyday objects. His work was included in the ground-breaking exhibition New Painting of Common Objects in 1962, which was the first museum exhibition of Pop Art to be held in the United States. The exhibition also included work by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Dine, Ed Ruscha, and Wayne Thiebaud. Through the years, Joe Goode has combined various traditional and non-traditional media in the creation of his artwork. While his subject matter has remained relatively consistent over the years, he has revisited each theme using different media. Goode's work has been exhibited worldwide and is included in many major museum collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Menil Collection in Houston; the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC; and New York's Museum of Modern Art and Whitney Museum of American Art.
