I WAS ALWAYS AWARE THAT MY WORK WASN’T POP. And Walter Hopps knew it too, even though he included me in the Pasadena Art Museum’s “New Painting of Common Objects” in 1962. I had the attitude of, I don’t care where you show me as long as you show me. It’s not very often I choose to revisit a series I’ve done before.

One of Joe Goode’s fond memories of the New York art scene of the '60s was when the great Andy Warhol invited him to dinner at “my favorite restaurant.”  Goode, who was then so poor he had hitchhiked to Manhattan, was dazzled. Would it be Grenouille or maybe the Cote Basque, where Truman Capote nestled among  his entourage of millionaire fashionistas?

I’ve often wondered why writing about art must be so complex, so ponderous, so filled with grandiose vocabulary and overly-intellectual concepts. Not so with Michael Kohn Gallery’s catalog, “Joe Goode: Paintings, 1960-2016.”
