Jonas Wood


Best known for his paintings, drawings, and prints of interiors, still lifes, and sport scenes, Jonas Wood (b. 1977, Boston) creates abstract and brightly colored renderings of his chosen subjects. Wood cited Lucian Freud, David Hockey, and Alex Katz as key influences in his practice; his works often use different formal techniques to create disjointed and fragmented viewpoints reminiscent of Cubist methods. The works of Jonas Wood have been widely collected by major institutions around the world, such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Major solo exhibitions also include those held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Hammer Museum, and the Dallas Museum of Art.
