Basketballs, ceramics, and lush plants fill Jonas Wood’s paintings, drawings, and prints, which mostly comprise intricate still lifes and interior domestic scenes. Throughout his compositions, the artist draws from art history, memory, and the people, objects, and interiors that compose the fabric of his life (the ceramics, in fact, reference the practice of Shio Kusaka, the artist to whom Wood is married; Kusaka draws from Wood’s work, as well). Inspired by artists including David Hockney and Alex Katz, Wood embraces bright palettes, detailed patterns, and flattened forms. He has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Beirut. His work can be found in the collections of the Hammer Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among other institutions. At auction, Wood’s works have sold for seven-figure prices.
