Jonas Wood: Plants and Animals

Text by Jonas Wood.

Jonas Wood: Plants and Animals

Sumptuous and colorful new portraits, still lifes, landscapes and interior scenes from the beloved LA painter

This volume provides a concise, comprehensive and intimate look at Jonas Woodís 2022 solo exhibition at David Kordansky Gallery in Los Angeles. With illuminating texts by Wood that incorporate process notes, references and thoughts about his practice and artmaking in general, this richly illustrated monograph shows how he plans and executes his celebrated paintings from his own point of view.
Jonas Wood: Plants and Animals features large full-color plates of the 14 paintings in the exhibition plus installation views and dozens of contextualizing images. These include drawings, collages, prints, photographs, previous paintings, research materials and studio shots; many are never-before-seen selections from Woodís personal archive. Plants and Animals is a vivid and entertaining immersion in the world of an artist whose evocations of daily life, memories and invented scenes are both familiar and surprising, and whose paintings contain innumerable visual worlds of their own.
Jonas Wood was born in Boston in 1977. He has been the subject of solo and two-person exhibitions at the Dallas Museum of Art (2019); Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar, the Netherlands (with Shio Kusaka, 2017); Lever House, New York (2014); and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2010). His work is in the permanent collections of many institutions including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Broad, Los Angeles; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

What's not to love about plants and animals?

Featuring recent paintings (of interiors and landscapes with all variety of potted and natural plants plus animals including dogs of many breeds, leopards, deer, cats and even alligators) and preparatory materials like drawings, collages, prints, photographs, previous paintings and studio shots, itís truly a window into the artistís process, amplified by a very personal running text by the artist. ďIn order to live I have to paint, and I seem to always paint about my life,Ē Wood writes. ďSo I think I really focus on painting things that are important to meómy family, our pets and other animals, my studio, and the plants inside it and around Los Angeles. Itís funny that I even paint a lot about painting, but I guess it makes sense. Itís one of the most important things in my life, and Iím grateful to be able to share it with you.Ē continue to blog
