Joe Goode was born in Oklahoma City in 1937. He moved to Los Angeles in 1959 and attended the Chouinard Art Institute. First recognized for his Pop Art milk bottle paintings and cloud imagery, he was included—along with Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jim Dine, Ed Ruscha, and Wayne Thiebaud —in the ground-breaking exhibition New Painting of Common Objects at the Pasadena Art Museum (now Norton Simon Museum) in 1962. This historic exhibition was the first Pop Art show in the United States. In Still Life #8 Goode further explores the idea of obscuring a photographic image that he began in 2009 with his Golden Dreams series, in which he worked over photographs of Hollywood. He continues to pursue the themes of creation and destruction, affirmation and negation, beauty and violence, that have run through his mature work as an artist.
