Joe Goode is an influential American artist, best known for his contributions to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. Born on February 27, 1937, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Goode moved to Los Angeles in 1959, where he quickly became an integral part of the burgeoning West Coast art scene. He studied at the Chouinard Art Institute, where he developed his distinctive style that combines elements of realism and abstract expressionism.

Inspired by natural forces, Joe Goode seeks to convey the process of perception in his paintings. Along with artists like James Turrell and Robert Irwin, Goode is associated with Light and Space, a West Coast movement dedicated to exploring the experience of seeing that emerged in the early 1960s. In his paintings, Goode walks the line between abstraction and representation. He gives hints of recognizable forms and uses subtle gradations of color and visible brushstrokes to stimulate viewers to reconsider their own perceptual experiences.
