Jonas Wood art & career
Influenced by the vibrant palette
of painters like Henri Matisse and David Hockney, Wood’s new paintings of domestic
pots and interiors are eye catching and surreal. In his experimental
interpretations of American life, Wood blends human figures, domestic objects and landscape
scenes to distort any sense of reality. Developed from intricate pencil drawing studies, these oil paintings also take tips from the bizarre abstract works by Surrealist artists.
Gagosian Gallery exhibition highlights
Look out for Wood’s Grey Greek Pot and Wood Grain Pot with Night Bloom. In both these works, Wood’s
magic touch with texture and colour makes an appearance. You'll also enjoy the contrast between
classical mythology and the very ordinary shower curtain from Wood's childhood home in Monkey Pot.
