Jonas Wood

American, b. 1977

Jonas Wood's artworks overflow with basketballs, ceramics, and verdant foliage, evident in his paintings, drawings, and prints, primarily featuring intricate still lifes and interior domestic scenes. His creative tapestry weaves together elements of art history, personal memories, and the people, objects, and living spaces that define his existence. Notably, the ceramics in his work are a nod to Shio Kusaka, Wood's spouse, who reciprocally finds inspiration in his art. Drawing from the influence of artists like David Hockney and Alex Katz, Wood embraces vivid color palettes, intricate patterns, and flattened forms.
