Come experience collaborative artwork by Dane Goodman and Keith Puccinelli

About six years ago Goodman and Puccinelli, both Central Coast based artists and long-time friends, began a cooperative partnership in making art. At first blush their artistic styles may seem a mismatch, but at the core, both men are excellent draftsmen and both are interested in the ways that everyday objects and ordinary events reveal nuanced messages—both good and bad—about human relationships.

In their first collaboration, eating fresh peaches and tomatoes talking about death drawing together, Goodman and Puccinelli made 110 monotype prints together. The prints were first exhibited at Jane Deering Galleryin 2013, and were later acquired by the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art. Goodman and Puccinelli’s new collaborations in their drawings and three-dimensional inventions are equally provocative. These drawings and sculptures pose cacophonous interchanges, often charged with the artistic duo’s signature humorous but stinging punches. Their art forces us to ponder harsh realities, which we often prefer to ignore.
