JONAS WOOD MONOGRAPH

Los Angeles-based artist Jonas Wood creates vivid images, where space and everyday life are rendered with compressed perspective in bold graphic hues. This monograph - the first on the artist's work - brings together his most significant paintings and drawings. In doing so, it offers a unique insight into the vast array of his sources, which include family photographs, found imagery, baseball cards, and other people's art, including the ceramics of his wife, the artist Shio Kusaka. With contributions by curator and writer Helen Molesworth, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York Ian Alteveer, and a conversation between Wood and fellow Los Angeles-based artist Mark Grotjahn.

ABOUT JONAS WOOD

With one foot rooted in Analytic Cubism and the other in Contemporary Pop art, Jonas Wood is an artist who bridges two seemingly disparate traditions to create paintings that present contemporary life from multiple perspectives. Born in Boston and now living and working in Los Angeles, Wood took a somewhat circuitous route to becoming a professional artist, even considering pursuing a PhD in psychology before deciding on an MFA in painting. His work still contains subtle psychological elements, tying together elements of the past and the present, either through empty but intimate interiors or through other paintings of contemporary American life.
