Artist Information


Jonas Wood is a Los Angeles-based artist highly appraised for his freshening and quasi-abstract compositions featuring portraits, still lifes, landscapes and interior scenes. His use of geometry, pattern and color breaks down the picture in multiple two-dimensional layers, generating an illusion of depth and an abstract perspective at the heart of his characteristic aesthetic. Jonas Wood embraces a very intimate subject matter, creating artworks based on items, experiences and environments of his everyday life: ‘I’m interested in exploring the spaces that I’ve inhabited and the psychological impact they’ve had on me and my memories of them… And then I can create a new memory of that space’. He is admired for capturing the beauty in the ordinary. Jonas Wood’s aesthetic has been compared several times to the dream-like atmosphere of David Hockney’s paintings.
