Dale Goode

Dale's work is inspired by a jazz standard by Duke Ellington that is in the early form, made around the time of two other individual pieces, "Diminuendo in Blue" and "Crescendo in Blue. This particular song was performed by many including the notable Nina Simone. These were made into recordings that were seen as a new retreat from Ellington from much of his other work.

Goode works primarily in photography, mixed media collage and sculpture, but all share his reflexive, improvisational approach, which ultimately directed him to printmaking. In print, he was drawn to monoprinting, which is the most direct, painterly approach within the discipline. He works with a cool palette of indigos and purples with strong, defining graphic blacks rolled and laid over an array of textural elements that deliver complex, curious surfaces. He works with ghost prints, which is the second pass through the press that gives a lighter impression and all of this create a visual melody for him and his outcomes.
