Joe Goode

(B. 1937, Oklahoma City, OK.)

Joe Goode’s Milk Bottle paintings from the 1960s seem to isolate two incompatible forms in American culture from that time: the ubiquity of the quart of milk delivered to the front door each morning, and the traditions and conventions of abstract painting, specifi cally the monochrome canvas. In the space created between what was common and an uncommon experience, Goode’s paintings (and other works) nevertheless at the time shared a relationship with the domestic space of the house. Since the 1970s, Goode has moved his work more emphatically into abstraction.
