Joseph Goody’s imagery is inspired by – in his words – ‘literature, castle walls, parapets and ideas of organisation’. Meticulously composed, his large-scale paintings and works on paper explore geometric forms and layering with a softness that creates a sense of tension.
Goody’s watercolours and limited edition prints continue to explore the distinctive colour palette and dialogue between abstraction and architectural figuration that characterise his practice. Watercolour in particular is a favourite medium of Goody’s; in his words, ‘watercolour offers a transparency in painting which can create vibrant and subtle qualities of colour that I try to replicate in other aspects of my work’.
Goody graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London, in 2011 and won the Neville Burston Award for Painting. He continuted his studies at the Royal Drawing School where he won The Patrons Club Prize in 2012. Goody lives and works in South East London.
