London-based artist Joseph Goody graduated from Goldsmiths University of London with the Neville Burston award for painting in 2011. He then went on to win The Patrons Club Prize in 2012 when studying at the Royal Drawing School.
Goody specialises in abstract painting and watercolour and uses the tension between spontaneity and mediated action as inspiration in his work. He enjoys the authenticity that this approach provides as it allows him to create truly unique and original work.
His compositions of geometric forms and broad kinetic curves are built up through the painting, so they appear dependent of one another, creating a grid-like connection visible across and underneath the surface. The constituent forms dissolve into the layers of paint and the viewer is left to wonder which are the intended and which are the coincidental marks.
