Jonas Wood is a Los Angeles based artist highly appraised for his fresh and quasi-abstract compositions featuring portraits, still life, landscapes, interior scenes and moments of sports history. His use of geometry, pattern and color breaks down the picture in different 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 composing his everyday personal life. Wood is admired for capturing the beauty in the ordinary.
Making sly reference to Jeff Koons’ iconic work One Ball Total Equilibrium, this work belongs to the artist’s acclaimed series featuring Spalding basketball balls. Depicted in his highly appealing and playful aesthetic, Wood’s flat ball, rendered in its characteristic fiery orange, still gives us the illusion of visual bounciness and movement, as if he had caught it floating in the air in the middle of a hectic game.
