Staff Pick
“Joe Goode’s two lithographs from his Environmental Impact series of 1980-81 are perfect examples of the subtlety and economy that I often experience in Goode’s work. They are suggestive of vast spaces—perhaps the sky—and large ideas.” – Marinta Skupin, Curator of Education

About the artist
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 exhibit 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.

About the work
In his Environmental Impact series of 1980-81, Goode continued to explore the notion of vandalized planes, a theme of earlier works. The pair of perforated lithographs suggests ideas of creation and destruction, affirmation and negation, beauty and violence.
