Brenton Good creates work in conversation with the history of Art, drawing inspiration from Minimalism and Bauhaus inspired formalism. A strict adherence to rules and control is coupled in Good’s work with chance occurrences and controlled accidents. The resulting image has a dual nature that combines a meticulous sense of color theory with the organic nature of cracked sidewalks, coffee stains, and landscape. These two poles are meant to exist in a constant state of conversation, friction, and interaction.
He is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Messiah College, where he teaches a variety of Art History courses and Foundation Studios. Good has exhibited artwork internationally, and has his prints and paintings in collections such as the University of Alaska Anchorage, Bilkent University in Turkey, and most recently, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, TX.
