John Goodman was born in California and graduated from the University of California at Davis.

A self-taught artist, Goodman draws inspiration from the early modernists and the Bay Area Figurative Movement. He has exhibited in New York, Chicago and San Francisco. Goodman’s paintings reside in numerous collections in the United States and Europe.

Roberta Carasso wrote of Goodman’s work, “John Goodman’s paintings are a dichotomy of understated minimalism with reductive use of color that conveys a subtle, but evident sense of smoldering energy. The artist uses very thick paint that he sculpts, and draws in to, as he forms a rich tactile field of painterly surfaces. His images are consistently figurative, yet in each, there is a strong pull towards abstraction.”

Nathan Oliveira was an inspirational mentor to Goodman. In 2001, Oliveira said “John Goodman is one of the few Bay Area painters who still has faith in the language of paint.”

About his own work, Goodman says “painting is the coming together of two things – a specific subject, a model or landscape, and something elemental in the artist which allows us to connect, empathize, love or feel compassion.”
